CorSport: Milan want to acquire Fiorentina star as part of swap deal with €25m midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in the idea of acquiring Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic in a swap deal, a report claims.

According to Monday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), Milan will try and use unsettled midfielder Lucas Paquetá as an exchange pawn. After the attempt to land Florentino Luis from Benfica using Paqueta as a counterpart, there is another potential deal with Fiorentina for Milenkovic.

However, the paper notes that there is nothing concrete currently ongoing, but the idea within  Casa Milan could really take off if La Viola were to insist on the Brazilian.

The Rossoneri want a centre-back to support Alessio Romagnoli and the Serbia international could be an interesting solution. The director of a possible operation would be Fali Ramadani, agent of Ante Rebic and Luka Jovic.

The interest of the Tuscan club for Paqueta is concrete, and they made an attempt to sign him in January but were scared off by the €30million asking price. Now, that figure is between €25-28million, but the insertion of Milenkovic could unlock everything.
