Fabrizio Romano is regarded as one of the most trusted sources when it comes to transfer gossip and so when he speaks, many people listen.
The Italian tweeted the following out today with regards to Dusan Vlahovic, one of the most coveted young strikers around.
What is interesting about this tweet is the fact that Tottenham was not mentioned, Arsenal and Juventus were but for some reason, Spurs are not included in the Fiorentina President’s thinking.
There are two ways to look at it, one is that Spurs are simply not in the running, never have been and it is just normal gossiping from the media.
The other way is that Tottenham has not attempted to speak to the players’ agent and have done the right thing and gone directly to Fiorentina to strike a deal.
I must say that the latter option looks unlikely, if the Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso had been dealing directly with Spours then the chances are it would have leaked already and if Commisso is peeved with Arsenal and Juventus, you would have thought he would have held Spurs up as a club doing it the right way.
It is all guesswork I suppose but for me, the fact that Tottenham was not mentioned by Commisso, I find very interesting and it tells me that we are not in the running for the 21-year-old.
