Writing on Twitter, Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas has shared news coming out of Tottenham Hotspur involving Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs in defender hunt…
It has been widely reported that Tottenham and new managing director of football Fabio Paratici could add at least two new defenders before the window closes on August 31.
Spurs have already secured Serie A MVP award-winner Cristian Romero on a deal from Atalanta and have been linked with many others.
One name that has now been tipped by reliable sources is Milenkovic, with Sky reporter Thomas sharing some news out of N17.
The Latest: Spurs ‘in talks’ to sign Milenkovic…
As per the journalist, Spurs are now in talks to sign the Serbia international defender as his proposed move to West Ham United stalls.
Milenkovic was thought to be at very advanced stage of his mooted transfer to east London but it seems Spurs will try to steal a march on their English capital rivals.
“Tottenham are in talks for Nikola Milenkovic after his proposed move to West Ham broke down,” explained Thomas on Twitter.
“Also some interest from Wolves.”
The Lowdown: Get it done Paratici…
The centre-back, we believe, could undoubtedly be a brilliant potential partner to Romero in the heart of Nuno Espirito Santo’s defence.
As well as this, journalist Charlie Eccleshare of The Athletic once described a possible Milenkovic deal as ‘straightforward’ amid Spurs’ interest – and it is believed he could leave Italy for as little as €15 million (£12.7m).
Still young, the defender could also gain Spurs plenty of sell-on value in years to come if he continues to perform at a high level in the Premier League.
