Transfer News: Tottenham to battle AC Milan for Dusan Vlahovic
The 21-year-old plays for Serie A side Fiorentina, who he joined from Serbian outfit Partizan Belgrade as a teenager in 2018. Having slowly risen to prominence at the club, Vlahovic is now the first-choice centre-forward at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
So far in the 2020/21 term, Vlahovic has managed an impressive return of twelve goals and two assists from 27 matches in Serie A. The youngster’s exploits with La Viola has now led to interest from a host of clubs including Tottenham Hotspur.
As the end of the season nears, the striker situation at Tottenham once again starts to pose a problem. Spurs signed Carlos Vinicius on loan last summer from Benfica. But the Brazilian has been used sparingly by the manager.
And recent news reports have claimed that Tottenham might be reluctant to complete his transfer permanently, which would explain the club’s interest in Vlahovic.
However, signing the Serbian international will be anything but straightforward as Serie A giants AC Milan are also in the running for his transfer. Apart from the Rossoneri the likes of Borussia Dortmund, West Ham United and AS Roma have all shown an interest in signing the 21-year-old.

Vlahovic is still very much in the early stages of his career but has shown plenty of potential. Fiorentina are keen on holding on to him but given the amount of interest, it will be interesting to see if he stays in Florence beyond this season.
Should Tottenham decide to pass up on signing Vinicius on a permanent transfer, Vlahovic can be a suitable alternative.
