Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur looks to have been dealt a major setback as Andrija Zivkovic is being tipped to leave Partizan Belgrade for Atletico Madrid, Talksport reports.
The 19-year-old emerged as a target for the Premier League pair, but could lose out to Atletico Madrid given that they have begun talks with the player.
Zivkovic caught the eye of the two English sides after he impressed during the Under-20 World Cup earlier this year.
It is likely that Partizan may decide to let him leave given that the player will see his contract expire at the end of the current campaign as they don’t want to risk losing him for free in the summer.
The winger is currently the youngest player to ever feature for the Serbia national football team and was recently dubbed as the Serbian Lionel Messi.
He has been on good form for his side this term, so far featuring in 20 matches in all competitions, scoring nine goals while providing another seven assists.
