Arsenal and Tottenham look set to miss out on Partizan Belgrade starlet Andrija Zivkovic.
Reports in Spain forward claim the Serbian has been in contact with Atletico Madrid and a January move has been discussed.
Both north London clubs retain an interest in the 19-year-old, who starred in Serbia’s triumphant Under-20 World Cup campaign earlier this year, but Atletico are now in the most advanced position to capture him.
According to AS, Partizan may cash in on Zivkovic in January with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.
Zivkovic is the youngest player to feature for the Serbian national team and has been labelled the ‘Serbian Lionel Messi’.
