Spurs fans will love Igor's comments on Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic
Spurs fans appear to already have an idea of who their top target will be next summer, with recent reports suggesting that they will be ready to reignite their interest in Dusan Vlahovic.
Calciomercato noted that Fabio Paratici is desperate to sign the Fiorentina star after being linked with him in the summer.
Vlahovic scored 21 times in Serie A last year. And he has already bagged three in three in the top flight at the start of this campaign.
The 21-year-old was valued at around £60 million in recent times. And if his current form continues, La Viola are surely likely to demand a lot more by the end of the season.
Obviously, given his age and price-tag, there is an element of risk attached to a potential move.
But Spurs fans can take further confidence about Vlahovic from the comments from teammate Igor.
The defender was asked by Calciomercato whether Vlahovic is now the strongest striker in Italy with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku leaving.
“Dusan is becoming a really great striker,” he told Calciomercato. “He has already shown a lot and started well. He can do great things and yes, hoist himself to the level of the best.”
Spurs will hope Vlahovic emulates Ronaldo and Lukaku next summer
Obviously, both Lukaku and Ronaldo came to the Premier League. So Tottenham fans will be hoping that he can emulate the pair.
Of course, signing him will become tougher with each goal he scores. But it would be a huge statement to bring him in.
It is frightening to see how well he is playing at the age of 21. He has 24 league goals since the start of last season.
Igor clearly thinks Vlahovic’s trajectory is taking him to the top. And Spurs will hope that he will arrive there with them.
