CalcioMercato have reported that West Ham United have been offered the chance to sign Spurs target and Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenković.

The outlet also claim that Milenkovic could let the defender go this summer for between just £13m and £17m, with the player having turned down a new contract.

This new deal apparently would only put him on £13,000 a week, far less than a Premier League outfit could offer.

CalcioMercato previously reported that West Ham had submitted a £17m bid for the central defender, but it was said to be far below the asking price of £25.7m. The outlet clearly believe that things have now changed.

It has been reported elsewhere that Tottenham, Man United and Liverpool have all contacted Fiorentina about the player this year.

Multiple sources have also claimed that Fabio Paratici admires the defender and wants to bring him to North London (TuttosportViola News and Football Italia).

Spurs Web Opinion:

I believe that Tottenham’s main central defensive targets this summer are Takehiro Tomiyasu, Joachim Andersen, Jules Kounde, and Milan Skriniar. I also believe that Spurs will land two of these, while looking to offload two of Dier, Alderweireld and Sanchez in order to raise funds for the new acquisitions.
