Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Serbian defender Nikola Milenkovic this summer.
According to Calciomercato, Tottenham have recently been in touch with the player’s entourage regarding a summer move, and they are not the only Premier League club to do so.
Manchester United and Liverpool have also gathered information on the Fiorentina defender, and they are evaluating the economic parameters of the transfer.
The 23-year-old has done well for Fiorentina in Serie A, but he is keen on a new challenge.
The player’s contract with the Italian club expires in 2022, and they may look to sell him this summer to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year.
SL view: Ideal replacement for Alderweireld?
Tottenham definitely need more defensive depth, and Milenkovic could prove to be a quality signing for them.
The Serbian could be the long-term replacement for Toby Alderweireld, who is in the twilight of his career.
Davinson Sanchez has been quite inconsistent, and Jose Mourinho will be determined to bring in a quality centre-back this summer.
Milenkovic is an excellent reader of the game, and he is powerful in the air. Apart from his defensive qualities, the Serbian is a threat in the opposition box at set-pieces.
Milenkovic has scored three goals and one assist in the Italian league this season.
All three Premier League clubs linked with the Serbian could use some defensive reinforcements, and they have the resources and the stature to tempt the player.
