CM: Fiorentina set €35m asking price as Milan continue to pursue star defender

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are targeting a move for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic this summer, a report claims, but a high asking price has been set.

It is no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for a long-term partner for captain Alessio Romagnoli, and Milenkovic is a name who continues to be linked.

Calciomercato.com recently noted how the Serbia international is tied to La Viola until 2022, but at the moment there is no agreement to extend the contract and Milan – like other clubs – have moved informally to acquire information.

According to what is being reported by the same outlet, Milenkovic is among Milan’s ideas to strengthen the defence in view of the next season.

Their information claims though that Fiorentina are asking for €35million to sell the 22-year-old defender. The Serbia international is not the only target who has been linked recently either, as Milan continue to be credited with interest in Kristoffer Ajer of Celtic.
