Tuttosport: Ball in Milan’s court as €35m asking price is set for major defensive target

By Oliver Fisher -

Fiorentina have fixed their asking price for defender Nikola Milenkovic as strong links with a move to AC Milan persist, a report claims.

It is no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for a long-term partner for captain Alessio Romagnoli, and Milenkovic is a name who continues to be touted as a major target.

Calciomercato.com recently reported that the Serbia international is tied to La Viola until 2022, but at the moment there is no agreement to extend the contract and Milan – like other clubs – have moved informally to acquire information.

According to Tuesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milenkovic is views as one of the prized pieces of the Fiorentina squad and is a player they will only part with for the right price.

The paper claims that La Viola will request €35million for the Serbia international if they are to allow him to leave this summer, meaning the ball is now in Milan’s court as they must decide whether to stump up that sum or try a different negotiating tactic.
