CM: Fiorentina star heading towards January exit – Milan keen; player has given green light

By Oliver Fisher -

The opportunity to sign Nikola Milenkovic from Fiorentina could open up for AC Milan in the January transfer window, a report claims.

The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Milenkovic throughout the summer window, but Calciomercato.com report how Fiorentina did not want to offer any discounts on their €40m price tag to interested clubs, something which was ended up stopping Milan’s pursuit dead in its tracks.

However, a new opportunity could come up, as sporting director Daniele Prade confirmed that La Viola will sell the 22-year-old if he does not renew his contract, and at the moment he does not want to give much thought to signing a renewal.

Inter also thought about Milenkovic as a replacement for Milan Skriniar – who ended up staying – but Milan are the team that has taken the most concrete steps for the defender, meeting his agent Fali Ramadani several times.

The Rossoneri wanted a centre-back but in the end they didn’t find the right opportunity, yet Paolo Maldini will be ready if Fiorentina, perhaps in January, lower their asking price. Milenkovic likes the idea of joining Milan, so the situation could soon erupt again.
