Tottenham are set to meet with the agent of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic on Tuesday amid talk of possible transfer, according to reports in Italy.
On Monday, Italian outlet Tutto Mercato Web claimed Atletico Madrid are currently leading the race to sign Vlahovic – who scored 21 goals in Serie A last season – having made the most attractive bid to Fiorentina so far, thought to be around €70 million.
However, the report goes on to say that Darko Ristic – Vlahovic’s agent – will meet with Spurs and Inter Milan on Tuesday to determine whether those clubs see a deal as realistic.
The story comes as Tottenham have reportedly (via The Times) agreed a fee with Inter for striker Lautaro Martinez, which is relevant information when it comes to Vlahovic.
If Inter are keen on Vlahovic, perhaps that will make them more likely to sell Martinez to Spurs – but, in truth, there is no real indication as to whether that will happen.
In any case, it seems Tottenham are definitely interested in strengthening up front – let’s just hope it doesn’t take the entire month to get somebody in (spoiler: it probably will).
