Campbell issues bold Tottenham-Vlahovic claim after £65m Romano update
Kevin Campbell has insisted Harry Kane could play alongside reported Tottenham target Dusan Vlahovic.
The former Arsenal striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the 21-year-old Serbian would be able to “feed off” Kane.
Corriere dello Sport reported on November 15th that Tottenham are now firm favourites to sign Vlahovic in January.
If a deal is struck during the winter window then Spurs will have beaten off stiff competition from Premier League rivals Manchester City and Arsenal.
On November 11th, journalist Fabrizio Romano reported that it would take a fee of up to £65million to prise the young striker away in the winter window.
His Fiorentina contract expires in 2023.

Campbell insisted the Serbia international has a “really good opportunity” to shine alongside “one of the best” in Kane.
“He can play with and feed off Kane, of course, I can see that working,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“Sometimes it will just gel, and sometimes it takes time. He’s a quality player so of course, they can play together.
“But as an Arsenal man, I would much rather see him on the red side of north London.
“Having more weapons at the top end of the pitch can only be a good thing for Tottenham.
“It could be a really good opportunity for Vlahovic to challenge and learn from one of the best strikers in world football.”
Vlahovic has already netted 10 goals in 13 games across all competitions this season.
Kane has scored only once for Tottenham in Premier League competition this term.
