Transfer News: Fiorentina plan new contract for Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool target Dusan Vlahovic

Speaking to reporters (h/t The Daily Mail), Fiorentina director Joe Barone revealed Fiorentina’s intentions of wanting to offer a new contract to Dusan Vlahovic, who is the subject of transfer interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Italian outlet Calciomercato (h/t The Daily Mail) mentioned that Spurs saw the Serbian hitman as a potential replacement for Harry Kane, who has ‘asked to leave the club’.

Fiorentina, however, value Vlahovic at £52million and intend to keep him, with his current deal expiring in 2023. Their stance is best represented in the words of Barone, who reminded the youngster of his current allegiance.

“We’re monitoring the team as it is and after the pre-season training we’ll see what we need to bring in. Vlahovic is a Fiorentina player, he has two years on his contract and we are working constantly with his agent over an extension.”

Race for Vlahovic

Complicating things further for Spurs is the report from Tuttosport (h/t The Daily Mail), which claims that Premier League side Liverpool, as well as Serie A giants Juventus, also share an interest in the former Partizan striker.

Whether Spurs fans should be affected by this news or not depends on Kane’s future at the club. The English striker is undoubtedly the main man up front and only if he leaves would Spurs want a quality forward to step in for him.

As long as he is fit, firing, and playing his football in N17, Tottenham fans can be relaxed even if the club does not bring in a No.9. However, Kane could use a backup.

After Carlos Vinicius’ return to Benfica following the end of his loan spell, Spurs are without a natural striker that can be Kane’s understudy. But considering Vlahovic’s status in Italy and his aforementioned valuation, it remains to be seen if he would want to play second fiddle to Kane.
