AC Milan have been joined by Inter in their pursuit of Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
A number of different sources are claiming that head coach Stefano Pioli has asked for Milenkovic specifically as a reinforcement for what is currently a threadbare defensive department.
Pioli has already worked with the Serbia international during his time at La Viola and admires the player’s flexibility, as he can be deployed as both a centre-back and a right-back.
Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia (via MilanNews) gave an update on the situation regarding Milenkovic, stating that as of right now there are no negotiations between Milan and Fiorentina regarding the 22-year-old.
This is because La Viola’s demands make it an unrealistic signing unless a counterpart were included as part of the deal. The Rossoneri in in recent days tried to include Paquetà in the talks, but Fiorentina said no.
Therefore, either Fiorentina’s requests change or there are no great margins to reach an agreement. Milenkovic is also liked by Inter a lot, but they would only make a move if Milan Skriniar were sold.
