Tottenham fans should keep an eye on the £50.8 million midfielder at the World Cup today, as Conte is rumored to be interested in signing him.

Tottenham Hotspur fans will have divided loyalties at the World Cup today during Group H’s opening match.

South Korea will face Rodrigo Bentnacur’s Uruguay in their first match of the season in Qatar.

However, according to CalcioMercato, Spurs fans should keep an eye on the day’s final game.

Firstly, because forward Richarlison looks set to start for Brazil, ahead of Gabriel Jesus.

But also, because Spurs have been linked with one of Serbia’s biggest stars.

Tottenham fans need to watch Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic after being linked with the 27-year-old.

The report suggests that Spurs were considering a £50.8m bid for Milinkovic-Savic in the summer.

Antonio Conte is a fan of the Serbian and could offer something different in midfield.

He’s one of his country’s key players and is sure to play a big role in their World Cup campaign in Qatar.

Tottenham fans need to watch Milinkovic-Savic
It’s hard to imagine many players could break up Tottenham’s current midfield pairing.

Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have been fantastic for Spurs this season.

However, Milinkovic-Savic would offer something different and has previously been compared to Kevin de Bruyne.

Milinkovic-Savic is more attacking midfielder than any of Tottenham’s current options.

He recorded double figures for goals and assists in Serie A last season for Lazio.

In fact, no player in Italy has more assists than Milinkovic-Savic this season.

He’s also phenomenal in the air and wins the vast majority of his aerial duels.

When on form, Milinkovic-Savic is superb to watch, and Tottenham fans should keep an eye out for him today.

Serbia has an exciting, attacking side containing the likes of Dusan Tadic and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

If they can get anything out of tournament favorites Brazil, it would be a real statement of intent from Milinkovic-Savic and co.
