Goal Italia journalist Romeo Agresti has claimed that Fiorentina have made up their minds to cash in on rumoured Tottenham target Dusan Vlahovic in January.

Reports have continued linking Tottenham with a move for Vlahovic during the January transfer window after the North London club failed to get a deal for the Serbian over the line during the summer.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia) even claimed that the Fiorentina directors met Fabio Paratici last week to discuss the 21-year-old’s transfer in January. 

The rumour linking Spurs with the Viola star has now further picked pace over recent days, with SportMediaSet claiming that the centre-forward is one of the players Antonio Conte wants to be brought to Tottenham as part of his rebuild.

Juventus are also thought to be eyeing a move for Vlahovic in January but the Old Lady are said to be concerned that Spurs would blow them out of the water following Conte’s appointment (TuttoJuve24).

Agresti has now said that Fiorentina have set the striker’s asking price at €80m (£68.6m) and do not wish to negotiate with Juventus.

The journalist told Juventibus (as relayed by Calciomercato.it): “Fiorentina wants to sell Vlahovic in January to avoid dangerous dynamics.

“There have been a couple of trips to England to explore the local market.

“A piece has been fixed: €80m. Fiorentina do not want to sit down and talk with Juventus.”

Spurs Web Opinion

One can understand why Fiorentina would be keen to cash in on Vlahovic in January. Despite the striker’s impressive form this season, his value is only likely to go down next summer, with his current deal running out in 2023. It will be interesting to see if Spurs get involved in the bidding war for the 21-year-old in January.
