According to Gianluca di Marzio, Crystal Palace has submitted a bid for Saša Lukić, also wanted by Tottenham.
What is the story?
Well, the Italian reporter revealed that the Eagles have made an offer for the 18 caps International from Serbia.
Spartak Moscow have also submitted an offer for the 24-year-old’s services.
The Russian team can come up with Lukić Champions League football, so you’d be forgiven for thinking he would choose them over Crystal Palace.
however, Di Marzio writes that the Turin midfielder is actually extremely interested in one or the other move.
Lukić would like to play Premier League football, and also participate in the Champions League with Spartak Moscow.
However, Crystal Palace could face more intense competition for the Serbian, if a party confirms their interest.
Tottenham are also interested in Saša Lukić
According to Tutto Mercato Web, Tottenham also want to sign Turin number 7.
Italian media – which described Lukić as a gem in their article – believe Spurs will challenge South Londoners for his signing.
In our opinion, Crystal Palace could ask Luka Milivojević to have a word with the midfielder.
The two men know each other well, as they lined up for Serbia.
Milivojević and Lukić played a total of Three correspond with each other during their international service.
Di Marzio does not indicate how much Crystal Palace has offered.
However, he is clearly someone Steve Parish wants at Selhurst Park as an offer was submitted before a replacement for Roy Hodgson was found.
Now it will be interesting to see if Daniel Levy responds, as he too has yet to find a replacement for José Mourinho.
