CalcioMercatoWeb.it have claimed that Tottenham could blow Juventus out of the water in the pursuit of Atalanta starlet Rasmus Hojlund.
Hojlund has shown plenty of promise since his switch to Atalanta last summer, with the centre-forward having scored seven times and provided two assists in the Serie A this season (Transfermarkt).
Big things are expected of the 20-year-old, who has even been dubbed the ‘next Haaland’ by some observers.
CMW.it now reveal that Juventus have prioritised a move for the Atalanta starlet this summer as they plan on cashing in on Dusan Vlahovic on the back of his underwhelming displays this season.
However, it is explained that the Old Lady’s pursuit of Hojlund could get complicated by Tottenham’s involvement, with the Lilywhites also alleged to be fans of the Dane.
The report adds that Spurs could decide to push ahead with a move for the former Copenhagen youngster, particularly if they lose Harry Kane, and that the Premier League club would able to blow Juve out of the water, owing to the fee they would receive for the England captain.

Even if Tottenham were to cash in on Kane, which is far from a given, the club would want to replace the 29-year-old with a striker who is proven at the highest level, rather than a promising youngster like Hojlund.
In fact, Vlahovic might not be a bad option for Spurs to go for in the event that Kane leaves.
