As we head towards the final week of the summer transfer window the Milan management are evaluating various opportunities, with Luka Jovic an idea gaining steam.
According to Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), Milan are keeping a keen eye on Jovic’s situation. He has been excluded from Fiorentina’s squad list for the UEFA Conference League and thus he could represent a real opportunity for the Rossoneri.
Yesterday was a day with some developments as Milan explored the potential operation for the Serbian centre-forward, to the extent that there is talk of a permanent deal for €2.5m and a two-year contract until June 2025 for the former Real Madrid man.
What is also possible is a one-year deal with the option for a second season. The deal between Fiorentina and Milan for Jovic would be facilitated by the excellent relations that the player’s agent, Fali Ramadani, boasts with the Rossoneri.
Milan signed Luka Romero and Christian Pulisic in the current summer transfer window who are both represented by Ramadani, and a third operation could be completed.
The proceeds from the possible sale of Jovic would not go entirely to Fiorentina. In fact, 50% of the amount would go to Real Madrid due to agreements reached between La Viola and Los Blancos a year ago.
Another important fact that suggests that Jovic’s move to Milan is possible is represented by the fact that he could maintain the benefits of the Growth Decree.
Then, there is the fact that Jovic corresponds to the profile drawn up by Pioli because he wants a real No.9 to help Olivier Giroud manage his work load given he will soon be 37.
This is the reason why the former Eintracht Frankfurt man 0 who is very attracted by the idea of moving to Milan – has the approval of the Rossoneri coach.
He seems to have recovered his physical reliability too. In the last season at Fiorentina, Jovic amassed 50 games across Serie A (31), the Conference League (15) and Coppa Italia (4), scoring 13 goals and providing five assists.
