It seems the negotiations for Fiorentina’s Nikola Kalinic have finally unlocked. Yesterday, reports suggested that an agreement on the payment structure was missing, but today Italian media reports that an agreement has been found.
AC Milan are expected to pay €25m plus bonuses for the striker. Premier League club Everton also showed their interest in Kalinic, but the player himself opted for a Milan move and therefore rejected the Toffees’ offer, even though it was higher.
Everton’s offer to Fiorentina was also better than Milan’s (€29m), but the player decided to force a move to San Siro.
If things work out well, then he could even be called up for the Europa League encounter with KF Skhendija on Thursday, although it’s a long shot.
MilanNews.it reports that Milan will not end their chase of a new striker, despite the signing of Kalinic. The Rossoneri hope that one of Aubameyang and Belotti will arrive before the Mercato closes.
