According to a report by Calciomercato.it, Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic is ‘in the sights’ of Tottenham Hotspur, and by extension, Spurs’ managing director Fabio Paratici.
The Lowdown: Vlahovic linked with Spurs switch…
The Serbian was heavily linked with a move to north London over the summer as the club considered signing an alternative centre-forward option to Harry Kane.
Indeed, both the 6 foot 3 powerhouse and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez stood out as Tottenham’s most prestigious summer targets, with a report from Fantacalcio even claiming over the summer that Vlahovic ‘really likes’ Spurs.
The Lilywhites could not get a hold of their man in the end but an update from Italy has now indicated that Paratici is still eyeing a move.
The Latest: Paratici sets his sights on Vlahovic…
Despite the 21-year-old being in the middle of reports linking him with signing a new deal, Calciomercato.it claim that interested sides are still there as Inter Milan and Juventus court Vlahovic.
As well as the top Italian clubs, Fiorentina’s star player is ‘in the sights’ of Tottenham, with La Viola president Rocco Commisso desperately hoping that the Serbian extends his stay in Florence.
The Verdict: Get it done Fabio…
Scoring 21 goals and setting up two others in Serie A alone last year, Vlahovic could come as the perfect centre-forward signing for Spurs in future, even despite his £36m valuation (Transfermarkt).
Labelled ‘really crazy‘ by former Bulgaria international Valeri Bojinov, Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo could certainly do with a real injection of quality in the forward positions given the lack of depth behind Kane, so Paratici needs to be persistent in trying to get this one over the line when he next gets the opportunity.
