Report: Tottenham eye £88m double deal for Vlahovic and a French wonderkid
CalcioMercatoWeb claim Tottenham are eyeing a double deal to sign Dusan Vlahovic and French midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, for £88million.
Vlahovic, 21, has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham over the past few months – with Harry Kane’s future on the line in the summer.
However, Vlahovic remained in Italy with La Viola. But a recent statement from Fiorentina’s president, Rocco Commosso, says Vlahovic is set to leave.
He has rejected new terms, that would have made him the club’s highest-paid player, ever. Vlahovic’s contract expires in the summer of 2023.
Spurs are eyeing a move and a fee of £50million plus bonuses is expected to arrive in the coming weeks or months. But Fabio Paratici is not done there.
The Italian sporting director also wants Monaco sensational Tchouameni. A five-time France international, he already has 60 games for Monaco.
Spurs need depth in the middle of the park and the report claims Spurs will consider a move worth £38million – again, including bonuses.
Tchouameni and Vlahovic: Which is more important for Tottenham?
Tottenham desperately need back-up to Kane. It makes a striker one of the first ports of call for Paratici, but Vlahovic will hardly want to be back-up.
His 21 goals in Serie A last term, and six in eight this season, is proof he can join a big club and be first choice. At Spurs, Kane starts.
Spurs need a midfielder too, with little cover for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp. Tchouameni would be ideal for that role.
