AC Milan are leading Napoli in the race to sign Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic, according to a report.
It is no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for a long-term partner for captain Alessio Romagnoli, and Milenkovic is a name who continues to be linked.
Calciomercato.com recently noted how the Serbia international is tied to La Viola until 2022, but at the moment there is no agreement to extend the contract and Milan – like other clubs – have moved informally to acquire information.
According to a report from La Nazione (via MilanNews), it is currently the Rossoneri who lead Napoli in the race to land the 22-year-old, with Fiorentina having slapped a €35m asking price on their prized young asset.
The two Italian clubs will also have to be careful about the possible hijack of foreign teams though the newspaper adds, while the same outlet recently claimed Juventus are interest too.
