Report: Tottenham watching 'extraordinary' player closely, he has 'gentleman's agreement' to leave

Tottenham are keeping a close eye on Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, ahead of making a potential bid for the Serbian in August.

According to Fiorentia.IT, who relay reports from the Italian media, Tottenham have been watching Milenkovic in recent weeks and there is a 50% chance that the defender does indeed leave Florence. It’s claimed that Milenkovic has what’s labelled as a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to leave Fiorentina, if the right offer comes along.

Dubbed as an ‘extraordinary‘ talent, Milenkovic has starred in Serie A over a number of seasons and was linked with a move to West Ham United earlier in the year. Of course, he remains in Italy as of now and faces a big decision over the next move in his career.

For Tottenham, who have already more than £100m this summer, a defender remains a potential priority before the window closes. The success of Cristian Romero’s arrival from Serie A has given Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte hope that another Italian league addition could work out.

However, a number of Spurs players need to leave as well, and it’s believed Paratici is focussing on getting those exits sorted before he signs anyone else.

This would be handy for Tottenham. If they could somehow do a deal for Milenkovic it would just given them that added strength in depth at the back.

The back three of Dier, Romero and whoever Conte chooses – whether it be Davies, Lenglet, or another – should be fine this season. However, there is no doubting Milenkovic would improve things.

If Spurs can get this over the line, then with a long season ahead, you’d have to call it smart business.
