Tottenham Hotspur Urged To Land This Juventus Striker: Is He The Right Fit For Ange?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent tweet, Ramon Vega urged Tottenham Hotspur to land Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer. Vega stated that the Serbian talent would be a great replacement for Harry Kane if Spurs end up losing their star forward in this off-season.

Vlahovic’s Good Scoring Record In Italian Football Last Season

Vlahovic enjoyed a decent campaign at the Allianz Arena recently as he was responsible for putting in a string of impressive displays for them on the attacking end of the pitch. The Serbian sensation scored 14 times and managed to earn four assists in 42 matches for Juve last season in various competitions.

The 23-year-old proved himself to be a decent goal-getter in the final third based on his average of 2.5 shots, 0.8 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. However, he lacked quality when interchanging possession with his teammates after making 72.1% of his attempted passes in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at the Turin club will expire in the summer of 2026. Thus, Spurs will have to make a big offer if they want to recruit the Serbian sensation soon.

Is Vlahovic The Right Fit For Tottenham Hotspur Boss Angelos Postecoglu?

Vlahovic is proficient at finding space for himself to get a few strikes in at goal. The Serbian talent can be a good finisher in the final third when he is playing at the top of his game on the field. He can even create the odd chance for his teammates up top but needs to find a way to be more consistent in front of the opposition goal.

At 23, Vlahovic has got a bright future ahead of him and would be a great, long-term fit for Tottenham boss Angelos Postecoglu’s needs this summer. He would serve as a good replacement for Harry Kane who is facing an uncertain future at the North London club.

Vlahovic will bring plenty of goals to Postecoglu’s attack. He might even help Spurs challenge for some major honours over the next few years. Hence, it makes sense for Tottenham to engineer a move to sign Vlahovic ahead of the new campaign.
