Tottenham Hotspur have been frequently linked with a move for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer and now fresh reports have emerged from Italy.
According to Calciomercato, Spurs have entered the race to land the 25-year-old midfielder with Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United also mooted as well as Serie A Juventus and Inter Milan.

Savic appears to be an ideal target considering his comparisons to both Zinedine Zidane and Yaya Toure whilst he has also been described as a “delightful footballer” who has a bit of “Catalan flair” in the past, too.
This season, the Serb has featured in 31 matches in all competitions, scoring five goals and providing seven assists, via Transfermarkt. He’s even averaging 2.1 shots, 1.6 tackles, 1.3 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per game (WhoScored).
Much of the Spurs faithful have been reacting to the reports on Twitter, here’s what has been said in response…
It’s amazing how one day Mourinho is only allowed free agents in the summer and the next day we are in for fucking Milinkovic-Savic. Done with it and sick of it.

Exactly the midfielder we should've got
I would've gone for him instead of ndombele https://t.co/mBtYkmB2sV

The perfect signing imo. Does everything we need. He is kinda Dembele esque.
