The agent of Fiorentina defender Stefan Savic has confirmed Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have shown an interest in his client who is flattered by reports linking him with a return to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old Serbian joined Manchester City in 2011 but after an inauspicious first season in English football he moved to Serie A in part of the deal that saw Matija Nastasic arrive at the Etihad Stadium.

Since his troubled season in Manchester, Savic has since carved himself a formidable reputation in Italy as part of La Viola's backline, earning him the admiration of Serie A champions Juventus and Milan.

But clubs in the Premier League could be tempted to take another chance on the former Partizan starlet, according to his agent.

"We are flattered by the interest of Juventus, we are talking about a great team," Savic's agent Zarko Pelicic told

"We also enjoy the high esteem of clubs like Manchester United, Tottenham and AC Milan, who have shown interest in my client.

Pelicic stopped short of suggesting any deals where on the table, however, indicating he is yet to begin formal negotiations with any club.

"To be honest, however, we have not yet had any official contact with any team."

After finishing with the worst goal difference in the top eight last season,Tottenham are expected to bolster their defence in time for the new campaign. Although Mauricio Pochettino's tactical and organisational skills will help to rectify last season's calamitous mistakes at the back, another centre half is likely to be the Argentine's plans.

Following the departures of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, United are expected to add another option at centre half to supplement the trio of Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, in addition to Michael Keane who may be retained in the first team next season.
