Fabio Paratici and Tottenham are definitely interested in signing Fiorentina superstar Dusan Vlahovic, according to reports in Italy.
The Lowdown: Vlahovic lights up Serie A
The 21-year-old Serb is arguably one of Europe’s most exciting young attacking players currently, scoring 35 goals in 93 appearances for Fiorentina.
Vlahovic also has a hugely impressive record at international level, netting six times in his first 12 caps for Serbia.
He has been extensively linked with a move to north London for quite some time, and now another update has emerged from the country he plies his trade.
The Latest: Spurs interested in move
Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are also mentioned as potential suitors, while other big clubs are believed to be eyeing up a move for him, too, even though the €70million (£59m) asking price could put some off.
‘It is certain’ that the Lilywhites and ‘half of Europe’ are interested, says the report, but the ‘scary’ price tag is a major stumbling block.
The Verdict: Potential Kane replacement?
With Harry Kane’s Spurs future likely to become a talking point again in January or next summer, a long-term replacement could be needed for Nuno Espirito Santo.
At 21, Vlahovic certainly represents the future but he is already performing at an extremely high level in Serie A, proving that he could be an immediate success story in north London.
He has been described as ‘incredible’ by Serie A journalist Conor Clancy and could bring some fresh blood to a Spurs squad in need of it.
In other news, Nuno has confirmed an injury setback for one Spurs player. Find out who it is here.
