Atalanta star Josip Ilicic is probing the ground ahead of a potential move to AC Milan this summer, according to a report.
According to the latest from MilanNews, Ilicic is close to separating from Atalanta at the end of the year. The 33-year-old would like a change of scenery and Milan would be a great opportunity for him, especially if a return to the Champions League were to be secured.
The Rossoneri management admire him but the operation would only take off if Atalanta were willing to let the Slovenia international leave at a very low price like Papu Gomez, who went to Sevilla for only €7.5m.
For the operation to accelerate, it will also be important to understand what will happen with Hakan Calhanoglu, because Ilicic could be used either as the central attacking midfielder but also as a right winger if needed. Ilicic has 56 goals and 37 assists in 143 games for La Dea.
