Report: Club to offer new contract for ‘jewel’ eyed by Spurs; Paratici could have to pay £60m

AFC Fiorentina are working on awarding Spurs target Dusan Vlahovic a new deal which includes a €70m (£60m) release clause.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport via Labaro Viola, the 21-year-old striker is keen to renew with the Serie A side.

Although Fabio Paratici is keen to bring the Serbian attacker to north London this summer, Vlahovic is eager to remain in Florence to develop his game further.

The centre-forward was a sensation in the Italian top-flight last season. Vlahovic hit 21 goals in Serie A. Moreover, the prospect has asserted himself as one of the most exciting attacking prospects in Europe.

As per the report, Fiorentina views Vlahovic as ‘the jewel’ of their club. Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the Serbian attacker.

But Spurs are seemingly the side most interested in the youngster, mainly due to how much Paratici rates the attacker.

Indeed, Vlahovic signing a new contract will be a big blow for Spurs and Paratici’s vision for the club long-term.

With Harry Kane’s future hanging in the balance, the 21-year-old striker could have been a great replacement should the Tottenham attacker leave this summer.

Vlahovic might be a young striker. But he has the qualities that Spurs will find appealing in replacing their talismanic forward.
