Spurs boss Maurcio Pochettino planning major changes to his squad this summer after falling short in trophy hunt this season and Serie A pair are in his sights

Tottenham are considering making a £100million double bid for Lazio duo Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is ready to embark on a major overhaul of his squad this summer after the club fell short of winning a trophy again this season.

Defenders Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose head the list of four first team players who could be moved on to finance a spending spree in the close season.

And the Mirror claim top of the list of targets are Serie A pair Milinkovic-Savic and Immobile.

Tottenham scouts are understood to have been tracking the duo closely over the past couple of months and it seems the club could now step up their interest.

Serbian midfielder Milinkovic-Savic has caught the attention of a number of Europe’s biggest clubs with his displays in Rome.

At 23, he is regarded as one of the brightest young talents around and Spurs would be pulling off something of a coup if they were able to tempt him to North London.

He is seen as the ideal player to come into the Spurs side as Pochettino prepares to move on first team regular Mousa Dembele.

Despite being a key part of the current side, Dembele is approaching the final year of his contract and at 30 the club believe his best days may have passed him by.

Victor Wanyama is another from midfield who the club are looking to sell this summer, while they would not stand in the may of Moussa Sissoko leaving either.

One of the key problems Pochettino wants to solve is to bring in another player to help share the goalscoring burden with Harry Kane.

And 28-year-old Immobile has the pedigree and quality to make the transition from Italian football to the Premier League stage.

The Italian international has a proven record domestically and in Europe and would be a step up in quality of strikers brought in compared to Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente.

Alderweireld is set to leave Spurs having rejected the offer of a new contract, with Chelsea the latest club to show interest in the £50m-rated defender.

And Rose is expected to fetch a similar fee if he leaves, with Manchester United expected to launch a bid for his services over the close season.
