Report: Spurs eyeing old Hammers target

Spurs are weighing up a bid to sign Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic, according to a new report.

The Hammers made a bid for the defender last summer.

And it now appears that their London rivals are eyeing a potential swoop.

La Nazione, an Italian outlet, reports that Tottenham have entered the race to secure his signature and that Fiorentina want him to make a decision over his future before August 4th.

The Irons, of course, have signed Nayef Aguerd this summer although he picked up an injury in the friendly against Rangers, and they are not mentioned in the report as having an interest in rekindling their pursuit of Milenkovic.

  1. This guy isn’t a target for us, we tried to do a deal for him, agreed the fee with Fiorentina then couldn’t get it through as he is allegedly managed by a very shady bunch of individuals, lots of other clubs have also tried and failed to get a deal done for him.

  2. That does explain why he never actually went anywhere after all the interest shown in him by multiple clubs. Let’s hope he does bring his shady mob to the Spuds. It’ll look good on them.

  3. Why don’t we go back and pick him up. We have done most of the negotiations last time.
