According to Mirror, Tottenham are eyeing a double swoop for Juventus targets. The club’s technical director Fabio Paratici is hoping to land another blow towards his ex-club, this time by landing two of their reported targets in Aurelien Tchouameni and Fabio Vlahovic, with the latter being targeted as a summer option while Tchouameni might be a target in January.
The 4th Official takes a look at how each of these two players could fit into things at Tottenham Hotspur, should they move to North London in the future.
Aurelien Tchouameni: An Upgrade Over Oliver Skipp?
Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed a lot of success with the last summer coup of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. But the team has been crying out for some variety in the middle of the park, as their midfield department has often lacked creativity.
Spurs’ interest in Aurelien Tchouameni, therefore, is an exciting prospect for the fans, as it suggests that the club is looking to improve the midfield unit. The AS Monaco starlet, in that regard, could prove to be an ideal upgrade over Oliver Skipp, who is currently the preferred option alongside Hojbjerg in the double-pivot.
Tchouameni could prove to be an excellent midfield partner for the Dane, as he can effortlessly rotate possession while also acting as a ball-carrier. His creativity, work ethic and youthful exuberance should help him add another dimension to the Spurs midfield, thus making him an ideal target for the Lilywhites.
Dusan Vlahovic: The Replacement For Harry Kane
It is much easier to guess the desired role for Dusan Vlahovic, who is being courted as a potential replacement for Harry Kane. It is needless to point out that the Englishman is set to leave the club at the end of the season, as he looks to move to a bigger club and seize the first competitive trophy of his professional career.
Kane’s potential departure is set to create a massive void in Tottenham’s goalscoring department. But in the form of Vlahovic, the Lilywhites could land an ideal replacement, who not only specialises in scoring goals but also boasts a tall 1.90m frame which could be tailor-made for the physically astute nature of the Premier League.
Vlahovic has been in excellent form at Fiorentina over the past one and a half-season, notably netting 21 goals in Serie A last term. This time around, the Serbian has netted four and it is only a matter of time before he moves to a bigger club.
