Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in pole position to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina.
The Serbia international has rejected the chance to extend his stay with La Viola and is widely expected to move on in the summer of 2022.
The likes of Arsenal and Manchester City have been linked with Vlahovic, but Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici are thought to have set their sights on a swoop for the 21-year-old next year.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Tottenham are at the head of the queue for Vlahovic’s signature, but the Serie A club are still not prepared to let their star man leave on the cheap.
Fiorentina are thought to be holding out for a fee of £70m for Vlahovic, who has already bagged eight goals in 12 Serie A games this season.
The former Partizan Belgrade youngster played the full 90 minutes as Serbia assured qualification for the 2022 World Cup with a 2-1 win over Portugal on Sunday.
