AC Milan have a concrete interest in signing CSKA Moscow playmaker Nikola Vlasic and have enquired about his asking price, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com writes how – in view of a possible return to the Champions League – Milan are studying and planning an important summer window to boost the quality of the squad available to Stefano Pioli. Vlasic is the latest target, a 24-year-old Croatian attacking midfielder, and his impressive numbers mean it is no surprise Milan have taken note.
This season he has 10 goals and 5 assists in 21 appearances in the Russian Premier League, and funnily enough he was targeted by sporting director Massimo Mirabelli back in 2017. Vlasic is a player able to adapt to all roles in attack such as a false nine or on either wing.
Milan conducted a survey with the entourage of the Split-born forward to protect themselves in the event of Calhanoglu’s farewell. There is a release clause of €35million valid only for foreign clubs, but CSKA Moscow could also settle for a lower figure of around €28-30m. Massara and Maldini have taken note and will decide in the coming weeks whether to start a real negotiation.
