Club careerEdit

Career in SerbiaEdit

Born in Kragujevac, Tomović started out at hometown club Radnički. He joined the youth categories of Rad in 2003, alongside Nemanja Pejčinović. In early 2005, Tomović was promoted to the first-team squad, making his first senior appearances during the 2004–05 Serbian Second League.

In January 2006, Tomović was acquired by Red Star Belgrade, alongside Vladan Milosavljev.[2] He subsequently played for the youth team at the 2006 Torneo di Viareggio, before making one senior appearance near the end of the 2005–06 Serbia and Montenegro SuperLiga, as the club won the title. In the summer of 2006, Tomović was loaned back to Rad. He spent one and a half seasons with the Građevinari, before returning to Red Star Belgrade in the 2008 winter transfer window.

Career in ItalyEdit

In July 2009, Tomović was officially transferred to Italian club Genoa. He made 19 appearances in all competitions throughout his debut season with the Rossoblù. In the 2011 winter transfer window, Tomović was loaned to Lecce for the remainder of the season. His loan was extended for a further year in June 2011.[3]

On 31 August 2012, Tomović joined Fiorentina in a co-ownership deal with Juan Manuel Vargas moving in the opposite direction.[4] He featured regularly in central defence and at right-back, as the Viola purchased the other half of his rights from Genoa at the end of the season.[5]

On 31 August 2017, Tomović joined Chievo on a season-long loan with an option to buy.[6]

On 24 August 2019, Tomović joined Serie A club SPAL on loan with an obligation to buy.[7]

International careerEdit

Tomović represented Serbia and Montenegro at the 2005 UEFA European Under-19 Championship.[8] He was subsequently a member of the Serbia squad at the 2008 Summer Olympics.[9] The following year, Tomović represented Serbia at the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.[10]

Tomović made his full international debut for Serbia on 14 December 2008, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 friendly loss against Poland in Antalya in a squad made up of mainly domestic-based players.[11]
