Tottenham keeping a close eye on Serbian who impressed against England on Sunday

By Mehdi Gokal -

Spurs are linked with several defenders, with the latest name emerging is Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic.

According to the sources who have informed TBR Football, the Lilywhites are keeping a close eye on the centre-back as a potential summer signing, particularly impressed by his performance against England in the opening group game of the Euros, despite Serbia’s narrow 1-0 loss.

Milenkovic, who anchored Serbia’s back-three, effectively neutralized England captain and Tottenham legend Harry Kane throughout the match.

The centre-half’s solid display highlighted his defensive prowess and attracted the attention of Spurs, who see him as a valuable addition to their squad.

Currently, Milenkovic has three years remaining on his contract with Fiorentina, which runs until June 2027.

He had a commendable campaign with the Italian club, making 50 appearances last season across all competitions.

However, Tottenham faces competition from other Premier League clubs, including Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa, Newcastle, and Fulham, all of whom are keeping tabs on the defender.

With the 26-year-old’s showing against the Three Lions, Spurs must be convinced about him.

Milenkovic’s impressive stats against England reinforce his quality: he completed 76 out of 80 passes with a 95% accuracy, won 100% of his tackles, made four clearances, and four recoveries, and performed seven defensive actions. (FotMob)

Tottenham reportedly views Milenkovic as a potential replacement for Cristian Romero, who is attracting interest from Real Madrid.

Ange Postecoglou would likely appreciate Milenkovic’s ability to handle top forwards like Harry Kane, making him a valuable asset for Spurs’ defence in the Premier League.
