Tottenham plot £100m summer swoop for star Lazio duo

Spurs are looking to beat Manchester United and secure a double deal for a pair of Lazio stars worth £100million, according to a report.

The Daily Mirror claims that Tottenham are considering making a £100million bid for star Lazio duo Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile.

The report states that defenders Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose could be sold in the summer in order to make room for a summer spending spree.

Spurs scouts have been watching the Lazio pair closely this season, and they view Milinkovic-Savic as the ideal replacement for 30-year-old Mousa Dembele.

Victor Wanyama could also possibly leave this summer, meaning they have been forced to look for midfield reinforcements.

The Serbia international however recently insisted that he is not contemplating his future at the current time.

He told “Everyone is telling their own version, but I’m not thinking about my future at all. I was thinking about how to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.

“Now that I have recovered I can concentrate on what is important: my performance and results with Lazio.

“The current situation makes me realise that I do not have to think about other options. I am concentrating on my current club and our goal of qualifying for the Champions League ”

Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino is also apparently keen on bringing in another striker to share the goalscoring burden currently on Harry Kane.
