AC Milan have a concrete interest in signing Josip Ilicic from Atalanta and have already begun contacts with his entourage, it is claimed.
Di Marzio revealed earlier in the week how Milan have taken a shine to the Slovenia international and then added (via MilanNews) that with or without the renewal Calhanoglu, Milan are seriously interested in Ilicic. The player could have the will to fulfil his dream of playing in a top club and sporting director Ricky Massara – who followed him at Roma with Monchi – has sensed an opportunity.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio to Sky Italia (via MilanNews), Ilicic is a strong temptation for Milan. Massara has admired him since his time in Roma when he tried to bring him to the capital, and it seems he has sensed an opportunity to finally get his man.
Ilicic’s relationship with Gasperini is no longer ideal and the Slovenia international is considering leaving, with Milan the most interested team and the Rossoneri having already started contacts with his entourage.
The 33-year-old has 55 goals and 37 assists in 141 games for La Dea since arriving and has been one of their best performers,
