Tottenham eye up move for Serie A superstar Dusan Vlahovic. The 21 year-old Serbian striker is considered to be their major priority before Premier League kicks off.
Vlahovic was sensational for Fiorentina last season with 21 goals, his performances helped La Viola survive relegation with ease last season.
According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur have identified Vlahovic as their main target in this summer transfer window. If the move goes through, Spurs will be lining up the Serbian striker up top along with iconic English striker Harry Kane.
Despite the rumours, it is quite unlikely that Kane will leave Tottenham, as owner Daniel Lewy is reluctant to sell their star man to defending Premier League champions Manchester City for anything less than £160 million.

Manchester City already raided Tottenham in the past, Kyle Walker being their last (at a cost of £50 million, and Walker eventually turned out to be totally worth every penny). This time the negotiation for Kane might go down to the wire.
As of now, Spurs new manager Nuno Espirito Santo sees Harry Kane as his main striker and hopes to establish a new attacking partnership with Vlahovic – allowing 29 year-old South Korean left winger Heung-Min Son to operate from the wide areas.
Vlahovic might find it to be a difficult transition from playing for a relegation-troubled team like Fiorentina in Serie A to a promising English club like Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
However, his skills, dribbles, fox-in-the-box presence, gameplay and lethal finishing shows plenty of promise, and he could succeed at Tottenham if he decides to make a move to the north London club.
Do you think Dusan Vlahovic has what it takes to instantly have an impact with Tottenham in the Premier League?
