Tottenham Hotspurs new director of football Fabio Paratici wants to bring in Serie A star Dusan Vlahovic. Paratici considers the Serbian as the ideal replacement for Harry Kane if the England striker moves away this season.
According to the reports from Firenza Viola, Vlahovic is being considered as the ideal candidate by Tottenham. Harry Kane’s future with the club is under doubt, with new reports emerging that the player will be allowed to leave if the monstrous transfer fee is met.
Vlahovic has been garnering interest from multiple top clubs across Europe. The Serbian had an excellent season with Serie A side Fiorentina and the club could be willing to sell him for €60million. Meanwhile, Tottenham looks like the frontrunner in the race, especially with the involvement of Paratici.
VLAHOVIC THE IDEAL TOTTENHAM TARGET
The Serbian has been prolific for his club. After a disappointing 19/20 campaign with Fiorentina. However, Vlahovic scored 21 times for his club this season and found his stride this season and was an important part of an underwhelming Fiorentina side.
Vlahovic is a strong presence and an excellent threat in the air. Because He is a good finisher and at an age of just 21, he offers excellent long term value to any club which is in search of a striker. Furthermore, the Serbian has scored 2 goals for his national team in the 7 appearances that he made.
This form in front of the goal has attracted interest onto Vlahovic. Juventus was one of the early sides that showed interest in him. Recently Liverpool has expressed interest in the player as they look to bring in a new centre-forward. Tottenham currently remains the major side in the race for his signature.
Harry Kane’s future with the club is in doubt with the striker expressing his interest in a move away. If Kane leaves, Vlahovic is an excellent option to fill the gap for instance. Director of Football, Paratici, is a long time admirer of the 21-year-old.
As a result, It is not a bad bet to invest €60million to bring in Vlahovic considering his ability and age profile. Therefore It will be a wise step to reinvest some of the Harry Kane sale proceedings, if Kane is sold, for bringing in the Serbian.
