Nikola Milenkovic will reconsider staying at Fiorentina after the window as he is still waiting for offers, despite interest from West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur, per Calciomercato.

Milenkovic desperately wants to leave Fiorentina this summer but could find himself stuck in Tuscany. La Viola will not sell the Serbian for anything below €15m (£13m), despite the 23-year-old being in the final year of his contract.

But Fiorentina’s asking price has so far priced Milenkovic out of a move, it seems. No side has come forward with a suitable offer or presented the centre-back with a chance to broaden his horizons.

Fiorentina may have to accept Milenkovic staying at the Artemio Franchi Stadium and potentially leaving for free next year. Yet it’s also a situation the defender wants to avoid, despite declining any contract extension to date.

Tottenham are among Milenkovic’s potential destinations away from Fiorentina as Managing Director Fabio Paratici admires the 28-cap international greatly. But he is only Spurs’ alternative for Cristian Romero, as negotiations with Atalanta are proceeding slowly.

West Ham also admire Milenkovic, with Sky Sports citing the Fiorentina enforcer as David Moyes’ backup to Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma. The Hammers are against paying their London rivals £25m and could look toward the Serie A instead.

Milenkovic would be ready to swap life at Fiorentina for London amid Tottenham’s pursuit, too, per TuttoMercatoWEB. But La Nazione note that while Spurs are the only side to bid, their offer was millions away from a deal €20m (£17m), even if add-ons would be accepted.

And with Milenkovic the second choice at both Tottenham and West Ham, Calciomercato note he could reconsider staying at Fiorentina. However, the Partizan Belgrade product will wait until the market closes before entertaining a new contract.

Fiorentina exit still likely for West Ham and Tottenham target Milenkovic

Milenkovic leaving Fiorentina this summer still remains very likely amid West Ham and Tottenham’s pursuits. But a move to London is on the brink, with the Hammers and Spurs both prioritising alternative defenders.

Only if they miss out on their current top targets is either likely to move for the Serbian. Spurs, particularly, will also have to improve their offer. Leaving a new deal at the Artemio Franchi Stadium a possibility post-market, despite Milenkovic having plenty to offer.

Milenkovic’s former Partizan boss Ivan Tomic has long hailed the centre-back as a ‘beast’, via Mozzart Sport. He is also strong yet pacey for a 6 ft 4 enforcer, who knows how to play the ball and read the game. Making a potential £13m initial transfer an absolute bargain.
