Report: Paratici would 'gladly' take 21-year-old to replace Kane, Spurs have already bid
According to Firenze Viola, Fabio Paratici would gladly sign Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic to replace Harry Kane at Tottenham.
What’s the story?
Well, according to The Sun, Daniel Levy has buckled.
The Spurs chief has now agreed to let Kane join Manchester City, after the England international expressed a desire to leave N17.
Pep Guardiola’s side will pay £160m, and will also be handing Kane a contract worth an eye-watering £400,000-a-week.
Amid this news, Firenze Viola believe Paratici – who knows Serie A very well – would take Vlahovic as Kane’s replacement.
The Italian news outlet add that Paratici wanted the Serbian while he was Sporting Director at Juventus, so he’s clearly a big fan.
Apparently, Tottenham have already bid
According to Calciomercato, Tottenham have already submitted a bid for Vlahovic’s services.
The wonderkid is valued at £51m, which sounds like a lot.
However, when you take into account the fact he’s six years younger than Kane, and would also cost roughly a third of the fee Tottenham will receive for their No.10, it sounds like a good deal.
In our view, this is exactly the type of profile Tottenham should be looking at as they search for Kane’s replacement.
With the imminent arrival of 20-year-old Bryan Gil, Tottenham could have their new Heung-min Son and Kane for the next decade in the Spaniard and Vlahovic.
It would be bold to trust a 21-year-old to replace someone like Kane.
However, after the season he’s just had, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Vlahovic smash it in the Premier League.
