According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Tottenham are set to enter talks with the agent of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs need a striker
Spurs are quite clearly in need of a new striker. Harry Kane has shared his desire to move on from north London (Sky Sports), while he even failed to turn up for training to further illustrate his point (talkSPORT).
Even if the talisman stays put, the Lilywhites do not have adequate support in depth behind him, such has been the problem for several years now.
They have been heavily linked with a move for Lautaro Martinez (Football Insider), but it also seems they have their eyes on another forward during this transfer window.
The Latest: Spurs to enter Vlahovic talks
As per this latest report, Spurs are set to enter talks with the agent of Vlahovic, while Inter Milan are also interested.
Fiorentina are said to be looking for €70m (£59.2m) to part ways with the Serbia international.
The Verdict: Top target
Losing Kane would be a blow to Nuno Espirito Santo – he will of course be eager to hold on to the man who has 221 goals in 336 games for the club.
However, if he were to depart, bringing in Vlahovic would certainly soften the blow. The 21-year-old was in top form last season in Serie A, scoring 21 goals in 37 matches (Transfermarkt), while he also has two strikes in seven caps for his country.
Would you like to sign Vlahovic?
Legendary Italian striker Christian Vieri is a fan, calling him “the best striker in Europe” for his age along with Borussia Dortmund man Erling Haaland (Football Italia). £59m is a lot of money to spend on just one player given the pandemic’s financial implications on clubs, but they would have that money available if Kane were to depart. To us, Vlahovic would be a worthy replacement.
