Imagine him and Kane: Spurs eye Serie A goal machine Dusan Vlahovic

Tottenham Hotspur could swoop for Dusan Vlahovic before this month’s transfer deadline…

What’s the word?

According to La Repubblica (via Viola News), Spurs are keeping an eye on the Fiorentina striker ahead of a potential move, with sporting director Fabio Paratici very keen to secure him.

It’s not the first time that the 21-year-old talisman has been mooted with a switch to North London this summer.

The Telegraph revealed last week that Spurs would target Vlahovic to play alongside Harry Kane, rather than to replace him amid the speculation surrounding his own future at the club.

Do Spurs need to sign Dusan Vlahovic?

NO!

NO!

YES!

YES!

Mike McGrath has since backed up his claims during an appearance on Fabrizio Romano’s Twitch channel.

“I’m told they are looking at Dusan Vlahovic, ideally him and Kane,” he said. “I reported they looked at Danny Ings earlier in the window but Vlahovic is the one they want if they were to sign a striker.”

Vlahovic is likely to cost around £50m.

Frightening frontline

Only three other players scored more goals in the Italian top-flight than the young Serbian international last season – Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku and Luis Muriel.

At just 21, he’s already in very good company and that’s an encouraging sign for his future.

Indeed, Vlahovic found the net 21 times in 37 appearances, and he’s kickstarted the new campaign with a bang by bagging seven goals in one game during La Viola’s pre-season win over Polisportiva C4 Foligno.

It’s widely believed that Nuno Santo will look to deploy a two-man attack, so another striker is certainly needed this window. With Ings out of the question, since he’s joined Aston Villa, Spurs should absolutely look to the Fiorentina star.

Whilst Kane is desperately trying to force a move to defending champions Manchester City, it is expected that chairman Daniel Levy will remain firm over his intentions to keep him in N17.

Vlahovic has been lauded as a “complete” centre-forward, which could hint towards him being an ideal partner to the wantaway England international.

“He’s just a complete number nine and I know it’s just off the back of one season, but he’s strong, can link play up, can hold the ball up and most importantly, he’s scoring goals,” Serie A expert Conor Clancy told This is Futbol. “He’s one of those players that when he looks confident, you almost expect him to score every time he plays.”

In a further interview with The Transfer Tavern, he added:

“He is young and he was phenomenal in the second half of last season, in particular. He just couldn’t stop scoring.”

Okay, we'll start with an easy one... How much did Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg cost last summer?

If Paratici and  Levy can secure Vlahovic, then they could well hand Nuno a frightening frontline that would strike fear into many a Premier League defence next season.

Between them, they scored 54 goals combined. That is a mouth-watering prospect for a side that finished seventh last season.

The £36m-rated goal machine would certainly be one hell of a signing. Nuno better hope they keep hold of Kane.

AND in other news, Paratici could secure Spurs’ next Eriksen in swoop for “magical” £18m-rated “prodigy”…
