AC Milan could make a fresh attempt to sign defender Nikola Milenkovic this summer as he does not want to renew with Fiorentina, a report claims.
The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Milenkovic throughout the summer window, but Calciomercato.com reported how Fiorentina did not want to offer any discounts on their €40m price tag to interested clubs, something which ended up stopping Milan’s pursuit dead in its tracks.
However, a number of outlets have since suggested that Milan’s pursuit is far from over and that they could return in a couple of months once the market reopens.
According to il Corriere dello Sport on Friday (via MilanLive), the Serbia international does not want to renew with Fiorentina who in turn do not want to lose him on a free transfer, therefore they are expected to listen to offers in January.
Milan have been monitoring the 22-year-old for some time and talked about him with agent Fali Ramadani, but without making an offer because they consider Fiorentina’s €40m asking price to be too high.
Nonetheless, Maldini and Massara will try to negotiate in January, but they will have to beat competition from Inter like they did to land Tonali.
