According to journalist Mike McGrath of The Daily Telegraph (via Twitter), bringing an update on his previous story, Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic is now the ‘priority’ for Spurs this summer as they look to support Harry Kane up front.
The Lowdown: Spurs in Vlahovic hunt…
Tottenham have been linked with a move for the Serbian for a while and The Times even claimed that talks had already been held over his possible signing this summer.
Claims from Italy have been equally as common with news outlet Fantacalcio recently saying that Vlahovic ‘really likes’ Spurs as a destination.
They also said that Spurs are ‘pressing’ for the player’s signature as McGrath drops his own update, backing these claims.
The Latest: McGrath brings Vlahovic update…
While he doesn’t reiterate talks or anything more advanced of that nature, McGrath does say that Vlahovic is now a ‘priority‘ for Spurs and, by extension, managing director Fabio Paratici.
Spurs didn’t opt to make Carlos Vinicius’ loan deal a permanent one at the end of 2020/2021, leaving Kane without a star striking partner up front.
This has prompted Paratici and Tottenham to look to Italy for attacking support ahead of what could be a gruelling 2021/2022 campaign under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Verdict: Get it done…
Out of all Tottenham’s striking targets, including the likes of Southampton ace Danny Ings, Vlahovic stands out as the really exciting name – leaving little wonder why Paratici has now made him a priority.
Scoring 21 goals and assisting two others in 37 Serie A appearances last campaign (Transfermarkt), the 6 foot 3 gem has also been dubbed a ‘phenomenon’ by former Italy international Antonio Di Natale (Rtv38 via TUTTOmercatoWEB).
If Spurs can secure him as their striker signing this summer, it would certainly be a contender for one of the coups of the window.
