Speaking to Radio Toscana, as transcribed by Fiorentina News, Italian journalist Niccolò Ceccarini has shared what he expects from Tottenham as they eye Serie A star Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs in Vlahovic chase…
Tottenham’s links to the 21-year-old sensation have showed no sign of ending since they were repeatedly tipped with a summer swoop.
As per The Telegraph, Vlahovic was a target for Spurs as managing director Fabio Paratici eyed a striker alternative to superstar Lilywhites man Harry Kane.
Fanta Calcio also claimed an offer had been made for the Serbian but to no avail, and since Antonio Conte’s appointment as Spurs boss, they have been tipped as one of the frontrunners for his signature.
Calciomercato.it name-dropped the exciting forward as one of many Serie A big names who Conte could bring to N17 as journalist Ceccarini also makes a claim on live radio.
The Latest: Ceccarini makes Vlahovic claim…
Speaking to Radio Toscana, as transcribed and shared by Fiorentina News, the market expert and reporter believes Spurs will make another attempt to sign him after north London rivals Arsenal recently lodged a bid.
“Today’s news is Arsenal’s offer to Fiorentina for Vlahovic,” he explained.
“The figure we are talking about is very important, but in addition to the interest of the Gunners, I also expect an offer from Tottenham, perhaps in June.”
The Verdict: Why wait…
La Viola president Rocco Commisso recently confirmed that Vlahovic rejected new deal offers to make him the highest paid player in the club’s history, putting Fiorentina under some pressure to sell while they can.
His current deal expires in 2023 and Spurs would be remiss not to take advantage of the opportunity as soon as possible before one of their competitors strike an agreement.
Kane, currently out of form with just one Premier League goal so far and Tottenham’s only natural senior striking option, needs to be backed up and Vlahovic could come as the perfect January option.
Lauded as ‘incredible‘ by Serie A expert Conor Clancy, the hot shot forward has continued his fine 2020/2021 goalscoring run of form into this season and his proficiency could be a real asset for Conte.
