Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer, although any potential move will hinge on the future of Harry Kane.
The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Manchester City throughout the summer, and the report claims that the Cityzens are also interested in Vlahovic if they can’t land the England captain in the current window.
After joining Fiorentina from boyhood club Partizan Belgrade in 2018, Vlahovic has established himself as one of the most promising young strikers in Serie A following an incredible 2020/21 campaign. The £36m-rated gem bagged 21 goals and provided two assists in 37 Serie A appearances last term, attracting the attention of some of the continent’s biggest clubs.
In a recent interview with This Is Futbol, Serie A expert Conor Clancy revealed his admiration for Vlahovic despite not having a good first impression of the 21-year-old marksman.
He said: “(He’s) incredible, and it really caught me by surprise because I’d seen him play in the flesh a few times, and he scored a great goal against Inter and there was a lot of hype in Florence about him. People were saying this guy’s the real deal, and I just couldn’t see it.”
After seeing him flourish in Florence, Clancy went into more detail regarding the Serbia international’s key attributes, explaining what Spurs can expect should they make a move for Vlahovic this summer.
“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. He’s one of those players that when he looks confident, you almost expect him to score every time he plays,” he concluded.
Therefore, it’s no surprise that Tottenham’s new director of football Fabio Paratici is plotting a potential move for the highly-rated Fiorentina gem.
While Kane’s exit would be met with hysteria in certain sections of the Spurs fanbase, a large section will be buzzing to learn of their keen interest in a potential world-class finisher such as Vlahovic. His arrival could mark a new chapter in the club’s history, and it could be the beginning of a bright future, one which might leave Spurs fans buzzing.
