If Kane does go, who will replace him?
Will he won’t he go? So much speculation on whether Kane will go or not. So maybe we should (well, not me personally, but Tottenham) look at our options if he does go. And that is what we seem to be doing, looking at potential replacements, and one of them is Dusan Vlahovic.
Vlahovic is a Serbian striker who plays for Fiorentina in Serie A, and he is only 21 years old. Last season he had a good campaign with his current club, scoring 21 goals and 2 assists in 37 league games (he started 34 times). However, his best season before that was in the 2019/20 season when he made 30 appearances (13 starts) and scored 6 goals. So I can understand why some press outlets have been raving about him.
Vlahovic is a classic poacher for his club, Fiorentina, with 20 of his 21 goals coming inside the box. Of his 21 goals, 18 of them came as one-touch finishes. All good stuff, so I am not surprised that Tottenham are looking at him. So if Kane leaves, that is one option.
From what I’ve seen of him, I would say he was more of a centre-forward sort of striker who has the ability to bring in his teammates (does that remind you of anybody?).
Also, what is interesting is that when Kane was the same age as Vlahovic, he was also accused of being a “tap-in merchant,” as Vlahovic had been called by some commentators.
If he is adequately handled, he can rise just like Kane has done. But a lot will depend on his trainers and ability to pick up things quickly. But then again, you probably could say that about any young player. So, yes, he could be an influential signing for us and end up being another great for Spurs, but there are many “ifs”. But the first port of call is Kane and his agent having a chat with Levy to see what vision he has for this season.
All the best, Glenn
