AC Milan appear to be biding their time in their pursuit of Nikola Vlasic with the player doing his bit to push through the move, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.it, Milan are keen on Vlasic because he can play in all the roles behind the striker, has a great eye for goal (12 in the 2020-21 season) and is just 23 years of age meaning there is ample room for him to grow as a player.
In recent days contacts through intermediaries have progressed and the Croatia international has made his will clear: he wants to join the Rossoneri and has made the Russian club understand that. It was not a transfer request, but in any case he made his intentions to join Milan known.
Vlasic not intend to have a volatile break in relations with CSKA, with whom he still has a contract until 2024, and instead would like to maintain good relations with the Moscow club, hoping to get Milan a discount on the price (currently around €30m) and a softening of the formula. CSKA want an obligation to buy, while Milan want an option.
