According to journalist Enzo Bucchioni, speaking to Firenze Viola (via Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur are one of the clubs ‘ready to invest’ in a striker signing as he tips them for Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Vlahovic, the Serie A sensation…
It is no secret that the Serbian powerhouse has been turning many heads in the Italian top flight with his performances for La Viola, bagging a remarkable 21 goals and two assists 37 Serie A appearances (Transfermarkt).
Lauded as a ‘phenomenon’ by former Italy international Antonio Di Natale (via TUTTOmercatoWEB), the 21-year-old possesses an abundance of quality has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs.
The Times even claimed that Spurs had already held talks over signing Vlahovic this summer, with Italian reporter Bucchioni now suggesting him for Tottenham.
The Latest: Spurs ‘ready to invest’…
Speaking on Vlahovic, Bucchioini has namedropped Tottenham when explaining there are many clubs interested in a forward of his ilk.
As well as this, he believes the club’s new managing director of football Fabio Paratici is a big admirer and has been for years, with the Lilywhites also ‘ready to invest’ in that key area.
“Many clubs are ready to invest in a young striker like Vlahovic. I say one: Tottenham,” Bucchioini explains.
“Like the sporting director, there is Paratici who would have gladly taken him for Juve as well.
“Kane wants to leave, he has asked to be sold and who better to take over than Vlahovic?”
The Verdict: Signing of the summer?
Vlahovic has run rampant in the Italian top flight and all of his credentials indicate he would be a fabulous partner or even potential replacement for superstar Harry Kane.
He has also been called ‘incredible’ by Serie A expert and Forza Italian Football chief Conor Clancy (via This is Futbol), but the only speed bump may be his lofty valuation – reported to be around £36 million by Transfermarkt.
It would be a tough transfer but arguably worth the financial risk, given his dominance in a top European league at such a tender age – imagine what’s to come if his 2020/21 exploits were just the early signs of the towering front man’s potential.
