Insider tips 'movement soon' as Tottenham line up 'brilliant' Vlahovic swoop
Tottenham fans can expect some movement soon on their club’s attempts to sign Dusan Vlahovic.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
On 5 October, Fiorentina released a statement confirming the striker would not sign a new contract with the club.
The hitman has scored 10 goals in 13 outings this season.
The Daily Express also reported on 14 November that Tottenham will shell out a club-record fee for the striker, though the source of this “reported” information was not included in the story.

For this reason, Wenham has urged a degree of caution.
“The situation with this was that I thought links were being made after Paratici arrived,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Vlahovic was on a very long list of Spurs targets.
“Having looked at his contract details and the fact that Fiorentina have said he won’t sign a new deal, they are preparing to sell in January.
“This is their last chance to recoup what he’s worth. That has now become far more interesting.
“It’s a deal Tottenham have looked at doing historically. I think there could be some movement soon.
“It’s one to look at certainly. There were reports overnight that Tottenham have beaten off competition to sign him and stuff about a club-record fee.
“There are no leading publications reporting that and there are no direct quotes in that piece so I wouldn’t get too excited yet.
“But it is a deal I can see Tottenham doing. He looks a brilliant player.”
