When Fabio Paratici came out and said that Tottenham weren’t interested in Dusan Vlahovic, few believed him.

After all, the Serbian makes perfect sense as the successor to Harry Kane should the England international be sold, sharing similar traits, including a great eye for goal.

When it became clear that Vlahovic wouldn’t be renewing at Fiorentina going forward, the rumours started multiplying by the hour, and Spurs were automatically brought back into the mix due to their reported efforts in the summer.

On Wednesday, TuttoMercatoWeb, in a short exclusive, claim the striker is ‘in the sights of Tottenham’, labeled as a ‘strong Spurs idea despite Paratici’s denials in recent days’.

In fact, there are currently ‘ongoing contacts between the parties’ and Daniel Levy and co. are ‘hard at work trying to anticipate fierce competition from Italy and abroad’.

That will be referring to the likes of Manchester City, Atlético Madrid and Juventus, all clubs who reportedly hold an interest in the young forward, who has continued his great vein of form from last season into the current campaign, scoring six goals in his first eight games.
