AC Milan are still on the hunt for a new attacking midfielder and Nikola Vlasic of CSKA Moscow could be the right man, a report claims.
According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the management are looking a player with different characteristics from Brahim Diaz and Vlasic has been on the radar for months. There have been new talks with CSKA Moscow, who wants to earn as much as possible from the possible sale of the 23-year-old, and Vlasic’s agent has publicly declared the willingness of the Russian club to sell the player.
CSKA could accept a deferred payment via the formula of a €10m paid loan plus a €20m option to buy, but they are not budging on their valuation of €30m. An agreement between Vlasic and the Rossoneri has already been reached over personal terms, but now a deal between the clubs must be struck.
Maldini is keeping other names warm and one stands out above all: Josip Ilicic. Also keep an eye on Isco of Real Madrid, but it seems Rafinha of PSG is not a target.
