According to a report from Serbian publication Sport Klub, Tottenham Hotspur have agreed to meet Fiorentina’s asking price for Dusan Vlahovic.

Vlahovic’s name has risen to prominence on the back of his impressive performances for La Viola last season, with the striker netting 21 goals in Serie A.

Previous reports from Italy have indicated that Tottenham’s new managing director of football, Fabio Paratici, has identified the Serbian international as a potential replacement for Harry Kane.

Some sources stated earlier this week that Spurs were competing with AC Milan and Atletico Madrid for the 21-year-old’s signature.

Sport Klub have now revealed that while Milan, Atletico and even Juventus hold interest in Vlahovic, none of those clubs are ready to meet Fiorentina’s €60m (£51.m) asking price for the striker.

The report adds, however, that Spurs have agreed to pay the fee and Vlahovic is thus edging closer to a move to the North London club.

Spurs Web Opinion 

The only way I can see us spending over £50m on a striker is if we cash in on Harry Kane. So, if Spurs do agree on such a deal for Vlahovic, that is perhaps a sign that the club are getting their signings in early before Kane’s sale as they did back in 2013 when Gareth Bale moved to Madrid.
