TMW: Milan in talks over 22-year-old Fiorentina star; Rebic and Paqueta could be involved

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have held talks over a possible deal for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, according to a report.

The Rossoneri have been strongly linked with moves for a number of different defenders as they look to reinforce their rearguard this summer, and Milenkovic is the name that continues to pop up most.

According to the TMW network, Milenkovic’s impressive 2019-20 campaign has attracted the interest of many teams, including teams from abroad and fellow Serie A sides.

Domestically it is Milan who have followed him closest, with agent Fali Ramadani having often discussed his client with the Rossoneri management.

There may be more talks concerning a swap deal with Lucas Paquetà, but involved in that could be the cancellation of the 50% resale clause that Fiorentina have on Ante Rebic, something which is making talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over a permanent deal complicated.

In short, the discussion is complex and goes beyond the single player. Milenkovic, however, has admirers abroad, with Atletico Madrid mentioned in particular.
