Report: 'Several' PL sides now in talks with agent of £22m star Spurs want; West Ham also linked

The agent of Spurs and West Ham target Nikola Milenkovic is in talks with ‘several’ Premier League clubs, according to a report from Calciomercato.

Milenkovic could well be on the move this summer. Fiorentina are reportedly braced for his departure with the Serie A side eyeing a move for Matija Nastasic.

According to previous reports, La Viola want £22 million for the 23-year-old. And it is Spurs reportedly leading the chase ahead of West Ham.

But perhaps there is now a chance that the two clubs are not the only English sides in the running.

Agent discussing Milenkovic with several Premier League sides surely reinforces idea Spurs and West Ham are keen

According to Calciomercato, the Serbian’s representatives are in talks with several Premier League clubs.

His admirers reportedly want more information on the defender.

The use of the word ‘several’ is interesting. That would arguably hint that Spurs and West Ham are not the only teams keen on bringing Milenkovic to the Premier League.

And given how strong the links have been, it surely reinforces the idea Tottenham and the Irons are indeed in talks.

It would be a huge surprise if several teams were discussing a deal, but either of the two London sides were not amongst them.

Tottenham will kick themselves should they miss out

It appears imperative that Fabio Paratici lands at least one new centre-back this summer.

Toby Alderweireld has been linked with a move away. Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier have not kicked on as some would have hoped. And Joe Rodon is probably not yet the finished article.

Paying £22 million for a player whose deal expires next summer may seem like a lot. But Milenkovic looks to be a fantastic talent.

He does not turn 24 until October. And yet, he has made over 120 Serie A appearances in his career.

They may rue missing out if he heads elsewhere. So perhaps now is the time to step on the accelerator.
