Sky: No denials from Milan about interest in 23-year-old playmaker but no progress made

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have not given up on signing Nikola Vlasic from CSKA Moscow but have not made any progress towards a done deal, according to a report.

With two weeks of the transfer market left, the Milan management have opted for a strategy based around patience and looking for the right opportunity to replace Hakan Calhanoglu with a suitable profile but also a good economic opportunity.

Gianluca Di Marzio spoke on Sky’s Calciomercato L’Originale broadcast (via MilanNews) last night, and confirmed recent indiscretions from other sources by reporting that Milan have not given up on Vlasic, who has begun to follow the team on Instagram which could be a clue.

These are not always signs to do with the transfer market, but Milan do not deny that they are on the trail of the player. At the moment, however, there are no decisive steps forward to sign him from CSKA and bring him to Italy in a very short time.
