Journalist claims Fiorentina defender is a ‘concrete target’ for Milan – talks opened with agent

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reached out to the agent of Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic to discuss the potential for a January deal, it is claimed.

According to the latest from Rudy Galetti, there have been contacts between the Milan management and agent Fali Ramadani over his client Nikola Milenkovic. The Serbian defender has a contract expiring in 2023, which means he has a low price and he could become a ‘concrete target’ for January to replace the injured Simon Kjaer.

It comes after this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) also reported that Milenkovic is an option being considered. Milan have followed Milenkovic for a long time as a potential target to reinforce the centre-back position, but every time they have enquired Fiorentina asked for €40m.

The Serbia international is very much back on Milan’s radar after Kjaer’s knee ligament injury, they added, also because La Viola’s demands have gone down. The paper claims that the 24-year-old has in fact renewed with La Viola and has a release clause of €15m.

    Hope not.

    Better to get Kamara for free or pay for Bremer, who is better.
    Milenkovic is too close to Romagnoli – im sure that if Alessio would be moved to Lazio, we would see even better reels from him than from Nikola.

    Why my picks?
    Kamara can play as CB but also as DM, youngest and free. Bremer – powerful, plays in style of Lucio, would supplement Tomori nicely.

    My dream pick is Soyuncu – contract ends in 23, good leadership, can even play libero. Grows into top CB, 25 but already heavily experienced on big stages. He would cost as ManU wants him – but it would send a strong sign Milan is back.

    But we are poor so get Kamara, then Bremer if possible. Dont sign Nikola, Kalulu would be better in the centre already and Florenzi is alright on the right.

    For me bremsr from Torino is a must . His contract expires in the summer – offer 5m cash in Jan & bring him in

    Also sign kamara in the summer for free

    Im not impressed from what I’ve seen of milenkovic & hope we don’t get him. Fiorentina were asking for 40m+ for him in the summer but agrees to extend his contract with a 15m release fee – this tells me that they not that impressed with him either. I hope spurs get him
