Two players Tottenham just made bids for both scored in 4-0 victory for their country last night
Tottenham Hotspur targets Dusan Vlahovic and Nikola Milenkovic both got on the scoresheet in a 4-0 win for Serbia last night.
In scoring form
Serbia beat Qatar 4-0 in what was a dominant victory, and one which Tottenham scouts may well have had a close eye on.
Spurs made a bid for both Vlahovic and Milenkovic over the summer (Firenze Viola), but didn’t land either of them.
Milenkovic ended up penning a new contract at Fiorentina, while they also stood firm in their desire to keep star striker Vlahovic.
Tottenham landing Milenkovic now looks much more difficult, with his future secured.
Vlahovic interest rekindled?
But it would not be a major surprise if Spurs did return to Vlahovic at a later date.
The aerially talented forward hit 21 goals last term, and his international display yesterday suggests he could continue to hit the back of the net with regularity this term.
Tottenham never were able to land the attacking player they wanted this summer, so they must still be in the market to sign a new number nine.
And if Vlahovic has another strong campaign he may well stay on Tottenham’s radar for January and beyond.
Even without Vlahovic or Milenkovic, Spurs made five new additions this summer – with Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero, Pape Sarr, Emerson Royal and Bryan Gil all arriving.
