Juventus winger could be edging closer to Tottenham move

| 11.04.2012

Milos Krasic has admitted his regret at not moving to the Premier League in January, but looks as though he could put that behind him by completing a switch to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The Serbian winger has fallen further out of favour in Italy since he snubbed winter interest from Chelsea and Tottenham, making just one appearance for Juventus in 2012, and he is now ready to escape the managerial regime of Antonio Conte.

His agent Vlado Borozan has confirmed Krasic’s intention to exit the Turin club, telling TMF, “Surely he will leave at the end of the season. We’re already discussing it.”

Krasic’s former club CSKA Moscow are reportedly keen to offer the wideman a chance to return to Russia, though Harry Redknapp is also believed to have maintained an interest, and could have the upper hand as the Serbian aims to test himself at the highest level possible.

Aaron Lennon’s persistent injury troubles have plagued Spurs’ Champions League bid in recent weeks, with team selection inconsistencies leading to inconsistent results, and Redknapp would be delighted to add some cover for the right side of midfield.

27-year-old Serbian Krasic fits the bill, and what would have seemed a far-fetched move only a year ago would now appear to be a very real possibility.

Indeed, Krasic’s performances had drawn attention to him from the biggest clubs in the world during his CSKA tenure, and the hype looked justified during the early days of his career in Italy, before he fell so spectacularly out of favour this term, during which he has made only nine appearances.

Though his mooted switch in January was being touted as a loan move, it is thought that any forthcoming offer would have to be for the player’s services on a permanent basis, to persuade Juve to part company with a man clearly surplus to requirements.
