While those are not mind-boggling numbers, Vlahovic’s potential and progress has alerted a lot of clubs across Europe, Tottenham being one among them.

Spurs have Harry Kane as their undisputed striker. Jose Mourinho did sign Carlos Vinicius as cover for the England captain, but the Brazilian is only on loan from SL Benfica.

While Tottenham retain the option of making his transfer permanent, the fact that he hasn’t been used as regularly in the Premier League may hint that the club isn’t entirely convinced. And, it seems like replacements are being drawn up already with Vlahovic emerging as a target.

Apart from Tottenham, the Fiorentina striker is also attracting interest from London rivals West Ham United while German giants Borussia Dortmund are also keen.
