Tottenham Hotspur may be in the market for a new midfielder this summer, given the concerns over Tanguy Ndombele's form since arriving from Lyon in 2019.
That may lead Spurs to bring in another midfielder or two this summer, with a holder and maybe another box-to-box or creative player needed in the Spurs side.
It's claimed that Mourinho wants both him and goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, with Virgilio Sport noting that Lazio have already identified Udinese's Juan Musso as a replacement that Strakosha.
Milinkovic-Savic, 25, has helped Lazio challenge for the Serie A title this season, notching five goals and seven assists in 31 appearances in all competitions.
The Serbian has been one of Europe's top box-to-box midfielders in recent years, possessing outstanding strength as well as technical ability on the ball.
What's interesting is that Milinkovic-Savic's agent used to play for Mourinho; Mateja Kezman was a Chelsea player under Mourinho back in the 2004-05 season.
That may just help Spurs, almost two years since the Mirror claimed that Mauricio Pochettino wanted to lure Milinkovic-Savic to Tottenham.
