According to a report from Il Milanista, rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Nikolo Milenkovich is keen on a move to the Premier League this summer. 

Anyone who has watched Tottenham even occasionally over the last few months would recognise that the central defence is the area in which the club are most in need of reinforcements.

Among the names being linked with the club, Milenkovich’s has popped up as much as anyone else.

La Nazione reported back in November that Spurs were tracking the Fiorentina star and that Jose Mourinho was a fan of the Serbian while Fabrizio Romano also revealed in January that the 23-year-old is a player whom Tottenham admire.

Previous reports from Italy have also suggested that the defender, who will be down to the final 12 months of his contract at the end of the season, was unlikely to put pen to paper on a new deal at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.

Il Milanista now report that Fiorentina are set to cash in on Milenkovic in the summer due to his contract situation and that AC Milan are keen on snapping him up.

However, it is asserted that Milan will find it difficult to sign the Serbian international, who is keen on a move to the Premier League.

While the report does not mention Spurs as a potential suitor, it is said that Milenkovic is on the radars of Manchester United and Manchester City.

Spurs Web Opinion 

Centre-back is clearly the priority position to address in the summer and I would expect Mourinho (if he stays) to be asking for two new central defenders.

Milenkovich fits the profile of player we are likely to be in the market for – relatively cheap and has the potential to improve. However, Jose might also want to bring in a more experienced campaigner like Vestergaard to add some leadership to the backline.
