Sky: AC Milan target €25m-rated CSKA Moscow star – two formulas considered

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made CSKA Moscow star Nikola Vlasic a target for the summer transfer window, according to a report.

The media headlines have been dominated by Milan’s search to find a replacement for Hakan Calhanoglu after the Turkey international decided to cross the city divide and join Inter on a free transfers.

According to what Sky are reporting (via MilanNews), Milan have targeted the Croatia international Nikola Vlasic. In the 2019-20 and 2020-21 campaigns he was the top scorer of the season of the Russian club with 25 goals in 72 games played.

Vlasic would cost €25m and Milan are thinking of a loan with option to buy but the alternative formula would be a loan with obligation to buy. Vlašić made his international debut in for his country four years ago in 2017, and then he became a regular international after Croatia’s 2018 World Cup campaign, also featuring at Euro 2020.

  1. Vlasic is still 23 years old and plays like Calhanoglu’s role. I think he would be suitable for Pioli’s tactics.

    1. He’s playing in Russian league and so far I can see his playing style not even close like Calhanoglu, he doesn’t pick up the ball from the centre diligently and his technical ability is quite average (also considering his performance also in Euro 2020). Don’t forget Luiz Adriano and Keisuke Honda, they both came directly from Russia and didn’t capable in making any impacts in their time playing for Milan. If Milan’s management really want to make a leap in next campaign, then don’t bother to even negotiate for him.
