Although Spurs have already bolstered their backline by roping in Clement Lenglet, they still remain in the market for another centre-back before the window shuts.
Fiorentina star Milenkovic, who has been linked with leaving the club throughout this window, is one of the players on Tottenham’s radar.
Serie A giants Inter and Juventus are also credited with interest in the Serbian, whose current deal at Fiorentina is set to expire in a year’s time.
Spurs are claimed to have even contacted Milenkovic’s agent to enquire about the possibility of a move for him.
However, according to Sky Italia, all of Milenkovic’s potential suitors, including Spurs, are set to suffer a blow in their hopes of signing him as he is tipped to stay at the Stadio Artemio Franchi for this season.
The 24-year-old’s entourage and the Fiorentina hierarchy held a meeting on Friday to discuss his immediate future and they have decided that the player should remain at his current side.
Moreover, Milenkovic is in talks with Fiorentina over a new multi-year deal, which if agreed up on would see him not leaving the club on a free transfer next summer.
With Milenkovic looking likely to stay in Florence, it remains to be seen whether Tottenham will turn their attention towards any alternative options.
