According to a report in Italian publication, La Nazione (as relayed by Inside Football), Fiorentina have received offers for Tottenham Hotspur target Nikola Milenkovic.

Milenkovic has been one of Fiorentina’s most consistent performers over the last two seasons and recent reports indicate that the 23-year-old has attracted the attention of many clubs around Europe.

It was reported last month that Jose Mourinho was keen on bringing the central defender to Tottenham in January.

The Serbian international has 18 months left to run on his contract at the Artemio Franchi Stadium and CalcioMercato reported two weeks ago that he is unlikely to sign a new deal with the club, amidst interest from the likes of AC Milan and Atletico Madrid.

La Nazione now claim that Tottenham and Manchester United are both keen on snapping up the central defender and Fiorentina have already received multiple offers for him.

However, the report asserts that the Serie A club have still not given up hope of tying Milenkovic down to a new contract.

It looks like a central defender is likely to be on our shopping list for next month’s transfer window, particularly with Sanchez potentially set to leave. Skriniar, Rudiger and Milenkovic have been the names who are being mentioned so far and the Fiorentina man would likely be the cheapest option out of the three.
