Some Spurs fans 'blame Man City' as club slap £85m fee on 21-year-old talent Paratici wants
Speaking to Ansa via Fabrizio Romano, club president Rocco Commisso revealed that it will take a mammoth offer for the Serie A side to part with their star striker.
Fabio Paratici is reportedly keen on signing Vlahovic this window. The future of Harry Kane is up in the air. Moreover, the Serbian international could be a potential replacement for the Spurs forward.
Atletico Madrid and Manchester City are also eager on Vlahovic. However, Spurs now face a big financial barrier if they are to sign the 21-year-old prospect this window.
Indeed, Vlahovic could be an ideal replacement for Spurs should Kane leave for City, if rumours are to be believed. But the price tag set by Fiorentina could be a problem for Tottenham.
The fee dwarfs Tottenham’s current transfer record. And although selling Kane would open up some funds for the north London club, Vlahovic would still take some financial undertaking to sign.
And on social media, Spurs fans are fuming that Fiorentina have set such a high figure for Vlahovic. In a window where City signed Jack Grealish for £100m, some supporters blame the Premier League champions for inflating the market.
Here’s what some Spurs fans had to say about Vlahovic on Twitter…
