Dusan Vlahovic has been linked with a move to Tottenham ahead of the winter transfer window.

A host of top European clubs are eying moves for Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic. Tottenham are the newest entry to the list of Vlahovic’s suitors, but they might have an advantage over their rivals.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Tottenham have emerged as the favorites to sign the Serbian star. Spurs manager Antonio Conte is reportedly a big fan of Vlahovic and has links that could accelerate an agreement.

Vlahovic has refused to sign a new contract, while his current deal runs until 2023. The summer transfer window is Fiorentina’s last chance to avoid Vlahovic’s free departure. A bidding war for Vlahovic is not off the table, given that several clubs are already eager to secure his signature.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Juventus are all eyeing moves for the Serbia international. According to the Italian source, Fiorentina’s asking price of €80m will not fend off Tottenham.

The Spurs might face competition from their arch-rivals Arsenal. However, new reports suggest that the player’s representatives avoid answering Arsenal officials’ calls.
