CorSport: Verona player becomes latest Milan midfield target

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan have expressed an interest in signing Ivan Ilic from Hellas Verona to bolster the midfield options at the club, a report claims. 

As has been reported by Corriere dello Sport this evening, the Rossoneri are one of the multiple teams that are thinking of making a bid for Ilic who has been impressive for the Giallorossi since he joined the club.

The 21-year-old Serbian first joined Verona in 2020 on loan from Manchester City. He was then signed permanently for a fee of €7.5 million in 2021.

He has made 65 appearances for the club in two seasons, scoring five goals and getting five assists. He could cost more than Milan are willing to pay for a player of his calibre.

His current market value on Transfermarkt is €14m so Verona are likely to want a fee in excess of that, especially given he is under contract until 2026. Lazio are thought to be very interested too.

  1. Right now milan can only buy U-21 player due to regulations and squad registation. This guy seems fit all the bills, and might be 3rd strogest mid if he were to join.

    But signing him means pobega will play less

          1. @Juro have you abandon your burner account @JK ? I notice @JK activity suddenly drop after I and @bb got suspicious that both of you are the same person.

            Special thanks to @IKWYDLS for triggering me to test this 🤣

      1. I have been reading this site for years but only start commenting since this summer.

        Isn’t @Lufi has been commenting on this site long before me?

      2. Anyway, you should read the comment correctly before accusing that someone else account is my burner account.

        There is fundamental difference between my comments and Lufi’s comments.

        While Lufi believe Milan can only add U21, I already said before that I believe Milan has some ways:
        • the last club-homegrown slot
        • the last Italian-homegrown slot
        • U21
        • remove Bakayoko + 1 or 2 more non-homegrown to create squad space for non-homegrown who are not U21.

        The other day, someone also accuse other account as my burner account even though what they mentioned is against my statement. That account talk the need to fill homegrown. On the other hand, I don’t think filling homegrown is important, the important thing is all 1st team players must be able to be registered at Serie A which means some non-homegrown have to be removed and replaced with homegrown/U21.

        Just because someone is talking about homegrown, does not mean I and that person is the same person. There are differing opinions regarding homegrown issue even among those who believe homegrown need to be addressed.

      3. Nooo dude. Im yelnats neighbour.

        But if u understand the regulations, then u need to know that bakayoko balu toure needs to go asap so other players can come in.

    1. We can also by homegrown players, not just U21. 1 club-homegrown and 1 Italian-homegrown slots are still available to use.
