Tottenham chase Sasa Lukic transfer with Torino putting £8.5m price-tag on 24-year-old midfielder in summer

TOTTENHAM are chasing Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic ahead of a summer, swoop according to reports.

The Serbian star, 24, has been a surprise star for the struggling Serie A side this term in what is his fifth season at the club.

But with Torino locked in a relegation dogfight, they could be willing to part with Lukic for just £8.5million this summer, say reports in Italy.

Lukic joined the Italian side from Partizan in 2016, initially struggling to get to grips with life in Serie A.

The central midfielder spent a season on loan at Levante in 2017-18 and has been a near-ever-present for Torino since his return.

So far this season, Lukic has played 22 times in all competitions, scoring three times – already his best season return in Serie A.

As well as Tottenham, Crystal Palace are also rumoured to be keen on the in-form Serbian – who has won 17 caps for his country.

But his future will heavily rely on whether or not Torino avoid relegation.

Should Torino stay up, the club will push to keep their star man or sell for closer to £20m.

But if they do slip down to Serie B, reports claim they would accept bids of around £8.5m.


Torino currently sit 18th in the Italian top flight, two points adrift of Cagliari in 17th – albeit with two games in hand.

Meanwhile, Spurs are also hot on the trail of Fiorentina star Nikola Milenkovic to bolster their defensive ranks.

However, they face competition from Manchester United and Liverpool for the Serbian – an international team-mate of Lukic.
