Transfer News: Juventus plot quick-fire January bid for Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic amidst interest from Tottenham Hotspur
The 21-year-old striker has caught the eye of several clubs across the continent. His performances last season ensured that the Italian club was well above the relegation zone as he bagged 21 goals in 37 Serie A games.
Tottenham to lose Dusan Vlahovic to Juventus?
Tottenham are amongst the clubs interested in him as they look to mount a Top 4 challenge. The arrival of Antonio Conte has not deterred the club’s interest either. Fabio Paratici and Conte would have a solid understanding of the Italian league and the young talent it possesses.
They would also be aware of the need for depth in their squad. There is barely any competition for Harry Kane in the striker role. Moreover, the Englishman is yet to get going this season in the Premier League when it comes to scoring goals.
Steven Bergwijn looks off the paces, and young Bryan Gil could take some time to settle into the league. In such a scenario, Spurs could benefit from a goal-monster like Vlahovic.

However, Juventus are also keen on securing his signature in January. In fact, the Turin outfit is also ready to lodge a £50million bid for him in the winter transfer window.
This does not match the price tag set by Fiorentina but the Old Lady have apparently taken encouragement from the players’ representative. If Spurs hope to sign the Serbian international, they might have to make a higher bid and convince him of their project in North London.
A good team plans for the future along with the present. Vlahovic, at 21, can be just that. He has a lot of years left in him and has already proven his pedigree as a starter in a top European league like Serie A.
