Tottenham eyeing summer swoop for Torino ace Sasa Lukic

According to Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur are considering making a move for Torino’s Serbian midfielder Sasa Lukic in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old came through the ranks at Serbian outfit Partizan Belgrade before making the switch to Torino in 2016. Following a loan spell away at Spanish club Levante in 2017/18, Lukic has become a first-team regular for the Serie A outfit, racking up 102 appearances in which he has six goals and an assist.

Lukic has missed just two league games for Torino this season, due to coronavirus. Across all competitions, the central midfielder has featured 23 times, chipping in with three goals. He has been one of the few bright sparks in a season mired in a relegation battle for the club and has now attracted genuine interest from Tottenham.

Spurs are in the market for a new central midfielder ahead of the next season, and understandably so, considering that Moussa Sissoko is not getting any younger while Harry Winks has failed to become a regular under Jose Mourinho.

So, bringing in another midfielder to partner the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Tanguy Ndombele can pay rich dividends for the North London outfit.

Marcel Sabitzer of RB Leipzig has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham but the club seems to be keeping their options open as Lukic has also now emerged as a potential target for the summer window. However, Spurs are set to face competition from London rivals Crystal Palace for the 24-year-old. (h/t Express)

Lukic is contracted with Torino till 2023. However, he could be available on the cheap should the club get relegated from Serie A this season. With RB Leipzig demanding £45m for Sabitzer, the Serb could prove to be a cheaper alternative for the Austrian.
