Rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Nikola Milenkovic has informed Fiorentina he will leave the Serie A outfit at the end of the season, according to Milan News. 

Calciomercato claimed last month that Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United along with Inter and Milan, are all interested in securing the central defender’s signature this summer for a fee in the region of £22million.

The 6ft 5in defender is out of contract with the Serie A outfit in 2022 with the report suggesting the Fiorentina admit that they face a losing battle to keep him at the club beyond the end of the current campaign.
