Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Tottenham have a genuine interest in Dusan Vlahovic, although they have not yet made an offer for the Serbia international.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye a striker
As such, Spurs are said to be looking at signing a striker, with Vlahovic said to be on their shortlist.
The Latest: Spurs eye Vlahovic
Romano has provided an update on Spurs’ pursuit of the Fiorentina striker via his Twitter channel.
He claimed that Spurs have a ‘genuine’ interest in Vlahovic, but they have not yet made an offer. Atletico Madrid have had a bid turned down, he added, while Manchester City are not working on the deal for the 21-year-old.
The Verdict: Not much time left
There is just over a week left before the transfer window slams shut. While Harry Kane has not yet departed, Manchester City are still said to be looking to sign the England captain (The Telegraph). Until the transfer window slams shut, there is no guarantee that he will stay in north London.
Would you like to sign Vlahovic?
Even if he were to stay this summer, Spurs would still need a new centre-forward, and Vlahovic would be a fantastic candidate. He netted 21 goals in 37 Serie A matches outfit for Fiorentina last season, and has two in two in all competitions this term (Transfermarkt). Also, according to Serie A expert Conor Clancy in an interview with This Is Futbol, “people were saying this guy’s the real deal”, a further hint of the Serbian’s talent.
Valued at £36m and with Fiorentina eager to hold on to Vlahovic, he would not come cheap, but Daniel Levy cannot afford be to put off by a big asking price, especially if Kane doesn’t hang around much longer.
