The reports in England suggested that Tottenham are keen on Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

In 194 appearances for Lazio, Milinkovic-Savic has managed to score 36 goals, and create 26 goals for his teammates.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Lazio this term.
The Tottenham manager is in the market for a new midfielder. José Mourinho is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
Tottenham are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has the talent to play many roles in midfield.
According to the report, “Italian paper Corriere dello Sport report that Spurs are keen to land Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio. The Serbia midfielder was a target for Mourinho at Man Utd and remains interested in the player, who has recently been linked with a move to PSG. Leonardo is apparently desperate to add the attacking midfielder to the Parisien squad, but Mourinho wants the player now, who has long since been linked with a move to Old Trafford. United’s interest in the player charts back to almost two years to the Mourinho era, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also seemingly keen on the Serbian having been linked with him last summer.”
