According to a report from Firenze Viola, Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu continues to be Tottenham’s priority ahead of Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic.
Spurs fans would have been hoping that a deal to sign Tomiyasu would progress after the conclusion of the Olympics but that has not turned out to be the case.
In fact, it was reported last week that the North Londoners had turned their attention to Milenkovic due after hitting a roadblock in their negotiations with Bologna for the Japanese international.
However, according to Firenze Viola, Tottenham have not yet given up hope of landing Tomiyasu.
The report claims Spurs will ‘first try to take’ the Bologna defender and, if they fail to land him, they will ‘return strongly’ to sign Milenkovic.
It is also explained that West Ham’s attempt to land the Serbian fell through due to the club’s unwillingness to offer the commission requested by the player’s agent.
The report goes on to add that Milenkovic, who is into the final 12 months of his deal at the Artemio Franchi Stadium, does not want to sign a new contract.

Perhaps, Tottenham’s move for Milenkovic is a tactic to get Bologna to lower their demands for Tomiyasu. I would be pleased if we get either but after Tanganga’s performance on Sunday, I do not consider a new right-back a priority.
