According to Calcio Mercato, Tottenham Hotspur are one of the clubs interested in Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.

Some changes are expected in the Spurs backline this summer, with two of the club’s central defenders being linked with moves away. 

A return to Ajax is said to be on the cards for Toby Alderweireld while reports have suggested that even Jose Mourinho’s sacking is unlikely to save Davinson Sanchez’s Spurs career, with the club having made up their mind to cash in on the Colombian.

Sky Sports have claimed that strengthening at centre-back is one of Tottenham’s priorities heading into the transfer window. 

Multiple sources (La Nazione and Fabrizio Romano) have previously revealed that Milenkiovic is a player who is of interest to Tottenham.

Calcio Mercato now suggest that the centre-back is increasingly likely to leave the Artemio Franchi Stadium when the transfer window opens.

However, it is asserted that there could be plenty of competition for the 23-year-old, with Manchester United, West Ham and Everton also showing interest. 

Additionally, AC Milan and Inter Milan are also said to be keen on the Fiorentina star but it is explained that a move might not be feasible as both clubs are in financial distress.
