Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly set to prioritise a move for 21-year-old Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic next summer.
According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato, Dusan Vlahovic is once again the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur over a move in next summer’s transfer window. In fact, the 21-year-old Fiorentina striker is being viewed as the priority for Spurs, who could well be in need of a new striker next season.
Dusan Vlahovic joined Fiorentina from Partizan Belgrade in the summer of 2018 and has since made remarkable progress in his career. However, it was last season, in particular, wherein the young striker finally burst into the limelight following some stunning performances. And he has continued his rich vein of form early in 2021/22.
In just four games in the ongoing campaign, the 21-year-old has a return of five goals to show for his efforts. With Vlahovic fast becoming one of the best strikers on show in Serie A, it is hardly surprising that some of the biggest clubs in Europe have been linked with him. Of late, much of the interest has come from Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham had been eager to sign Vlahovic in the summer transfer window as well amid all the uncertainties surrounding the future of Harry Kane. In the end, though, Kane ended up staying put at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, meaning Spurs did not pursue a striker in the final days of the window.
However, Manchester City’s interest in him does not seem to have waned, and it has been reported that the Premier League champions could make a move for him in the future. If that does prove to be the case then Tottenham will be in need of a striker.
To that end, Vlahovic is a viable target for the north Londoners, who have earmarked the 21-year-old as their priority for next summer. As per the report, though, Tottenham could face stiff competition from Atletico Madrid in his pursuit.
What now remains to be seen is if Harry Kane remains a part of Tottenham Hotspur when the summer transfer window opens next year. What will also be interesting is if Spurs make a move for Vlahovic even if Kane chooses not to leave the club.
