Tottenham transfer: Spurs close to signing £51m-rated star
According to Sport Klub, Premier League outfit Tottenham are nearing the signing of sought-after Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
Spurs have been linked with the Serie A talent. The North Londoners have been in the race for his signature alongside Milan and Atletico Madrid.
The 21-year-old has bags of potential. He fired 21 goals during 2020/21 and caught the eye with some stunning performances.
Tottenham don’t have a manager yet. Several big names have declined the position and the situation looks serious.
New managing director Fabio Paratici is in place though. He looks to have started work on new players and is nearing his first deal.
Vlahovic could prove to be an interesting signing. Harry Kane has been linked with a move away from the club. With that in mind, who knows what role the Serbian will play.
If the 27-year-old leaves the club then Vlahovic could play more of a starring role. If he stays, he’ll likely be second in command.
Reports have recently claimed that the seven-time Serbia international is valued at £51 million. If Paratici has paid that it represents a real statement signing.
Tottenham have likely paid for potential. His 21-goal haul last season has clearly seen his valuation sky rocket.
Plenty of praise has been heaped on Vlahovic. Teammate Steven Jovetic told Football Italia that he will be ‘better than Haaland’; whilst he’s also been called ‘incredible’ by an Italian football expert.
Vlahovic to Tottenham: Serb could take Premier League by storm
Scoring 21 goals at the tender age of 21 in a defence-minded league like Serie A is a massive achievement.
Tottenham fans could be forgiven for getting excited about this deal.
Spurs look set to beat Liverpool to the signing of Vlahovic and supporters will be keen to see him in action.
Tottenham, of course, still need a manager before they can get truly on board with next season.
This is a positive step, however, in the sense that Paratici looks like having the credentials to sign some top talent for the club.
Vlahovic could be a hit. Tottenham supporters will certainly hope he takes the Premier League by storm.
