Journalist Oli Gamp has urged Tottenham Hotspur to make a move for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to help them in the final third.
While some sections of the media have had a go at Spurs’ style of play and how their football can be seen as boring under Antonio Conte, they are the third-highest scorers in the Premier League at present – only behind the two teams above them in the league.
However, adding a creative midfielder could help them have a good season, and someone such as Milinkovic-Savic could certainly bring something different to the team.
Gamp would certainly like him to link up with Spurs, and discussing the kind of players Fabio Paratici should be looking for in the transfer market, the journalist spoke about the prospect of Conte’s side making an ‘ambitious’ move for the Serbia midfielder on the Spurs Chat podcast.
He said: “Someone like Milinkovic-Savic would be good. Obviously, that’s probably a bit ambitious as well, but just a creative player who can bomb forward would be good.
“I think there is a lot to look forward to. If [the team] can click into gear then that would be great, but right now, it doesn’t look like it’s happening.”
Should Spurs try and sign Milinkovic-Savic?
TIF Thoughts on Milinkovic-Savic…
The Serbian midfielder has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with both Spurs and Manchester United credited with an interest in the past – and that may only increase amongst other clubs if he has a good World Cup.
Milinkovic-Savic could certainly have a good World Cup as his Serbian side boast some top talents such as Aleksandar Mitrovic, Dusan Vlahovic, Luka Jovic and Dusan Tadic – who are all anchored and led by the Lazio midfielder.
His nation face an intriguing challenge to get out of Group G in Qatar, where they will need to navigate past Brazil, Switzerland and Cameroon.
It’s no surprise why Gamp wants Spurs to move for the Serbian as he boasts 10 goal involvements in Serie A this season and only has a contract until 2024, so he could soon be available for a cut-price fee, which would certainly make him a major coup as he’s apparently ‘one of the best’ midfielders, according to his club manager, Maurizio Sarri.
