According to sportklub.rs, Tottenham are leading the race to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this summer.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye striker
Harry Kane dropped a bombshell on Spurs when he revealed he wants to leave the club during this transfer window (Sky Sports).
Daniel Levy remains keen on keeping him, but Spurs must prepare for the possibility of needing to replace him should he leave. Even if he stays, Tottenham need a striker to provide competition and adequate support for him.
The Latest: Spurs lead Vlahovic race
Now, it is being reported that Spurs are leading the race to sign 21-year-old Vlahovic.
As per the report from his homeland, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are also interested in the Serbian striker, who is said to be valued at €60m (£51.5m) by Fiorentina.
However, out of those clubs, only Spurs can afford to pay that fee.
The Verdict: Long-term forward
Vlahovic would be a long-term choice for Spurs if they could capture his services. He had a fantastic season with Fiorentina last time out, scoring 21 goals in 37 league games for the club – he has 32 goals throughout his young club career (Transfermarkt).
Fiorentina legend Steven Jovetic has even said he will be the leading striker in football in the next few years along with Erling Haaland (Tuttosport via Football Italia).
Would you like to sign Vlahovic?
It is surprising to hear Tottenham are the only club of those now in pursuit who can afford to sign the Serbia international – they are not known for their big spending. However, an easier deal could be fantastic news for Levy as he prepares the squad for a campaign potentially without their talisman.
In other news, Tottenham want this Euro 2020 star.
