Tottenham Hotspur’s season is currently on hold with the world of football under lockdown for the foreseeable future – probably a good thing given their fortunes.
Jose Mourinho and his men have crashed out of all cup competitions and have sunk to seven points adrift of the top four in the Premier League.
However, fans have been given something to cheer about this week as the north Londoners have been linked to Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
According to Tuttosport, via TuttoMercatoWeb, Spurs have their sights set on raiding the Serie A outfit for the 25-year-old as well as their shot-stopper Thomas Strakosha.
But fans have been reacting to the news over Savic, in particular, here’s what has been said…
Would be a good one. Defo need a proper hard midfield general to replace wanyama. A makele type would be good to free up winks, ndombele and lo celso to be more creative

Milinkovic-Savic is a fantastic player, would fit perfectly into the squad AS a dm😻

Both would be very very good signings, especially Savic

this would be amazing, but probably isn’t true

Savic has been a major influence for Lazio this term, directly contributing to eight goals in the league whilst also averaging 1.6 tackles, 1.6 clearances, 1.2 key passes and even two shots per game, via WhoScored.
It remains to be seen if Spurs need another central midfielder, but on the figures above, you couldn’t really say no, especially as Mourinho is reportedly chasing a defensive-minded one for his armoury.

One supporter was desperate to see the Serb alongside Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele whilst some believed it could spell the end for the Frenchman or maybe Dele Alli in north London.
Get me this player before any other. Dominate the middle of the park with him, Lo Celso and a fit N’dombele. Now that’s a quality middle 3 to build your team around. https://t.co/FffXJdjFzX

This makes no sense unless dele is leaving

Top player but if he arrives Ndombele may leave

Plenty of others had their reservations over his price – and it is hard to disagree with €100m (£90m) the regularly-touted fee, as seen on Sky Sports Italia, via Football Italia.
Will be to expensive

Won’t happen. He’s already a big name player. We don’t sign those types of players, if Danny Rose doesn’t have to google him, it’s not happening

With what money ?

Levy is readying his 15 million bids as we speak!!!
