Juventus legend Alessio Tacchinardi has claimed that Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic is ready to make a step up to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Vlahovic is Fabio Paratici’s number one striker target according to Alasdair Gold (as said in the latest episode of Gold and Guest talk Tottenham podcast).

It was alleged last week that Tottenham had offered €60m (£51m) including bonuses for the Serbian international, who has just two years left to run on his contract at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.

Atletico Madrid are also said to be interested in the Serbian international, who netted 21 goals in the Serie A last campaign.

According to sources in Italy, the Lilywhites are prepared to offer the centre-forward almost double the salary that Fiorentina did during their negotiations with the player over a new contract.

Tacchinardi has now lavished praise on Vlahovic and urged interested clubs to snap up the 21-year-old this summer.

When asked about the striker’s future, the six-time Serie A winner told Tuttomercatoweb: “He must be signed now.

“Next year, he could end up producing monstrous numbers like Haaland. He is ready for Tottenham.  

“Now he is a diamond in the rough but he can grow a lot. He is a beast. For those who can afford him, I say that it is the right time to sign him.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

While I would love us to sign Vlahovic, I cannot see us splashing out £50m plus on him unless we plan on accepting City’s offer for Harry Kane. 

Some Spurs fans seem to be buying the idea that the Serbian could partner Kane upfront but I strongly believe that we would spend that money on other areas of the pitch if the England captain stays.
