West Ham and Tottenham handed defensive headache as transfer breaks down

London clubs chase Milenkovic

Both West Ham and Tottenham were believed to be chasing the signature of Fiorentina centreback Nikola Milenkovic this summer. Although West Ham expressed interest first, it had appeared that Tottenham had broken into a lead in the race for the Serbian defender’s signature.

Both sides are in need of  a central defender, with Kurt Zouma also an option that has been explored by the clubs.

However, both sides have since been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Serbian centre back Milenkovic, with transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano now reporting that the defender is set to discuss a potential contract extension in Florence.

Were he to stay put, he would represent another dead end for both clubs, adding to the rejections that Tottenham have already suffered for Pau Torres and Jules Kounde this window.

With time running out before the August 31st deadline, will either club push hard enough to make the Serb reconsider his position and make the move to the Premier League, or do they have another trick up their sleeves?
