According to CalcioMercato, Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs who are ‘crazy’ for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, who is set to be the subject of a big transfer battle.

Vlahovic was heavily linked with a move to Spurs during the summer transfer window, with some sources even claiming at the time that the Fiorentina man was Fabio Paratici’s number one striker target. 

However, the Serbian international ended up staying put in Florence and has made a bright start to the new campaign, with six goals in eight matches in all competitions so far.

The 21-year-old’s current contract runs out in the summer of 2023 and Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso has admitted he is unsure as to whether the striker will put pen to paper on a new contract with the club. 

Fabrizio Romano also reported this week that talks between Vlhaovic and Fiorentina had collapsed completely.

CalcioMercato have now revealed that Tottenham could be battling Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United for Vlahovic’s signature.

The report adds that it could take a transfer fee of around €45m (£38.3m) and over €10m (£8.5m) in agent fees to snap up the centre-forward.

Another report from the same website says Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan are working to acquire Vlahovic’s services but asserts that Tottenham are ‘in front of the others’.

It is explained that the North London club have the transfer budget to strike a deal for the Fiorentina star.

Spurs Web Opinion 

Even if Kane stays, we need a target man to replace Carlos Vinicius just to potentially give us a plan B when we are chasing games.

However, I cannot see us spending big on a striker if Kane does stay as it would be more prudent to invest that money into other areas of the pitch.
