Report: Tottenham table £59.5m double offer for Fiorentina duo

A report from Italian website Firenze Viola claims Tottenham have made a double offer of £59.5million for Nikola Milenkovic and Dusan Vlahovic. The Fiorentina duo are being strongly linked with a move to Spurs this summer. Now, Tottenham have made a double offer for Vlahovic and Milenkovic.

Milenkovic, 23, is out of contract next summer and Fiorentina need to sell him in the coming weeks – or risk losing him for nothing in less than 12 months. Meanwhile, Vlahovic could be a possible replacement – or cover – for Harry Kane. Also Serbian, Vlahovic scored 21 Serie A goals last term.

The report states that Fiorentina are looking for a combined fee of £72.5million. They wants £60million for Vlahovic, and at least £12.5million for Milenkovic. Spurs have offer £13million less than that figure at £59.5million. But Fiorentina are aware their demands are ambitious.

Milenkovic and Vlahovic would make Tottenham summer successful

It has been an excellent start to life by Fabio Paratici. Not only has he become a favourite among fans for his explosive performances in the dugout, but he has also brought in some good additions. Cristian Romero in particular is a real coup, given he was Serie A’s best defender last term.

But Spurs still need more. One more centre-back, a striker to either replace Kane or provide him with competition, are crucial. Milenkovic at 23 is cheap given his contract, but just what Tottenham need. Vlahovic is a wonderkid and 21 Serie A goals at just 21 years of age is quite incredible.

Getting both over the line for little under £60million would be sensational. But given Fiorentina want slightly more, if the two can come to a compromise then they should. It would take Tottenham’s window from good, to near-perfect if they get Milenkovic and Vlahovic.
