Tottenham gets a big boost after a transfer rival threatens to walk away from a deal, while West Ham looks at another star spotted by Spurs, both at the latest Euro Paper Talk.
TOTTENHAM GETS THE TRANSFER MOMENTUM FROM VLAHOVIC
Atlético de Madrid have started looking elsewhere for a new offensive signing after demands raised for Tottenham target Dusan Vlahovic, according to a report.
Both sides are reportedly involved in a tug of war for the Serbian international, who has played for Fiorentina in Serie A of late. The Spurs want the 21-year-old to support Harry Kane in attack next season, while Atlético see him as the long-term replacement for Luis Suárez. As such, both clubs have reportedly submitted offers.
Atlético came in first with an offer of € 50 million (£ 42 million) plus bonuses for Vlahovic. Tottenham, however, beat that offer, proposing € 60 million (£ 51 million) for the forward.
However, no offer has tempted Fiorentina, who wants to tie his star to a new contract with a 70 million euro (59 million pound) buyout clause.
Sky Italia now reports that Atlético has matched Tottenham’s bet, but received the same response.
And while The nation He adds that the Spanish giants could include the young defender Nehuen Pérez in a deal, now they are starting to look the other way.
The ‘high demands’ set by Fiorentina and Vlahovic’s agent Darko Ristic are ‘pushing away’ the reigning La Liga champions, potentially allowing Spurs to step in with an offer that will seal their transfer.
Furthermore, Fiorentina have identified Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca as their possible replacement for Vlahovic.
