Tottenham to intensify efforts for Chelsea transfer target

Tottenham are looking to beat Chelsea to a summer signing.

The player in question is Dusan Vlahovic, who joined Juventus in January 2022 for £66.6m and has scored 23 goals in 63 matches for the Italian giants.

Italian outlet Calciomercato reported in May that Dusan Vlahovic was on the shortlist of Arsenal and that Juventus are prepared to part ways with him this summer.

Rudy Galetti then reported in June that new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino wants Juventus man Dusan Vlahovic and considers him the ideal striker.

Italian outlet Corriere della Sera claimed at the beginning of July that the west Londoners have made contact for Vlahovic and seen a €60m offer rejected.

Now, as per Rudy Galetti, Tottenham are ready to intensify their efforts to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus, who has been lined up as a possible replacement for Harry Kane who is pushing for a move to Bayern Munich.

In terms of the transfer fee Juventus want for Vlahovic, it is claimed they could look to cash in on the Serbian striker for a fee of around €80 million.

Such a sum seems quite high for a player who did not have the best 2022/23 season but top strikers are hard to come by in today’s market.
