Tottenham Hotspur have entered the race for the summer signature of Manchester City midfielder James Milner, [football] direct news understands. The England international has little more than one year remaining on his contract at the Etihad Stadium and is yet to agree to an extension. Liverpool have been monitoring the situation since the turn of the year and could yet firm up their interest, according to an Anfield source, while a Spurs insider told FDN they are lining up a cut-price bid. The north London outfit aim to lure the 28-year-old to White Hart Lane before this summer’s World Cup, with Milner almost certain to be named in Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions squad destined for Brazil. Despite producing some of the best football of his career this season, the former Aston Villa and Newcastle United man has still struggled to nail down a regular place in Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Winger Jesus Navas and playmaker Samir Nasri have frequently kept him out of the team.
