Serie A club rejects offer from Tottenham for €25M Talent
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur wants to improve the backline this summer, and the Premier League side has monitored various targets such as Chelsea FC’s Kurt Zouma and Bologna F.C. 1909’s Takehiro Tomiyasu. 

However, Tottenham expresses interest in another central defender in ACF Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenković, but it doesn’t seem that the Italian club wants to hand over their prized defender. 

La Nazione (via Sports Mole) reports that Tottenham has officially made a bid for the 23-year-old. Nonetheless, the offer fell short of what Fiorentina wants for the Serbia international.

The report doesn’t state the amount that the English side put on the table for Fiorentina. Although Tottenham is preparing to make another bid for Milenković, but they won’t get in touch with them until the 25th of this month. 

When it comes to the potential cost for Milenković, Transfermarkt estimates the defender’s value at €25-million. The Fiorentina defender has made 133 appearances for the club, where he’s scored 11 goals.

I just wish for once we would pay the asking price, sign the player and move on. Enic’s policy is such an embarrassment.

This is typical of Levy. Identifies a player, considers the price then ALWAYS looks for a discount, no matter what.

He probably offered £10m, a case of Stella and a box of Milk Tray.

Yeah, Levy should just pay whatever fee a club asks for. It’s ridiculous that he should look to negotiate a lower price.

Likewise, presumably, he should just accept whatever rival clubs offer him for the club’s players, right?

Nobody said that. But I would prefer Levy to pay a little bit more to sign players in time for pre-season – trying to haggle until the end of the transfer window means a grown-up club can swoop in at any time and just complete the deal with minimum fuss.

But of course, you might sign a player in late August, who will be unfamiliar with the squad and tactics – and therefore useless for months – for 9.5 million instead of 10.2M in July. I think people call this a “Levy masterclass”.

Swoop in and complete the deal without any fuss? What if said player doesn’t want to be “swooped? The power is with the player not the buying or selling club.
Our man in Japan wants to play for tottenham. No swooping will change that. The selling club can be stubborn and refuse to sell but they can’t force him to sign for someone else no matter how much they offer. Just saying🌚

I seem to remember when we were interested in Bruno Fernandes Levy offered 25 mil plus 20 mil when we win the premier league and another 20 mil when we win the champions league…..surprisingly Porto turned him down and a proper club like Man Utd paid the right money and bought a superb player. I’m reading in the news that Southampton do not want to deal with Spurs anymore after last years business. I’m sure there are many more!!

I’ve done the bald parasite an injustice…..it was actually 45mill + 10 & 10……..he thought it was a good deal.

If kwp wanted to return to tottenham and tottenham wanted him to return he’d be a tottenham player soon enough. Southampton ain’t Chelsea. (Abramovic) unless they want an unhappy player to run down his contract then leave for free. Just saying🌚
