According to Calciomercato.it, Tottenham Hotspur managing director Fabio Paratici is already set for a 2022 swoop as he eyes Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs in summer chase…
The Serbian, however, elected to remain in Serie A and there are rumours of him potentially putting pen to paper on a new deal with La Viola.
Regardless, Calciomercato.it believe Spurs certainly are not done with the 21-year-old just yet.
The Latest: Paratici certain for 2022 Vlahovic move…
As per their sources, Paratici and Spurs ‘will certainly return’ with a swoop for the striker alongside La Liga giants Atletico Madrid – with Juventus also eyeing a move.
However, if the Lilywhites wish to land him, they may have to pay big money as Fiorentina are believed to value him at ‘no less’ than €70-€80 million (£60m-£70m).
Indeed, the Italian news website list Vlahovic as one of the Serie A big names who could leave at the end of this season.
The Verdict: A must…
The 6 foot 3 forward would undoubtedly provide Tottenham and Nuno with some much-needed steel in the forward areas and a back up or alternative to Harry Kane.
Lauded as a ‘really exciting’ player by Serie A expert Conor Clancy, speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Vlahovic also racked up an incredible 21 goals and two assists in 37 top flight outings last term (Transfermarkt).
Financially, this move is a tough ask, but it would certainly be a statement of intent by Paratici.
