MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan that accelerating for 22 year old centre back Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic FC who has been a target since April. The defenderwas a hot topic for Milan's transfer window but was overshadowed by the reported pursuit of Fiorentina's Nikola Milenkovic who now seems difficult to acquire based on cost and the unwillingness of Commisso to budge. The emerging reports are indicating that Milan could close a deal for about 15 million euros for the Norway international and that this could even be on a loan with an option to buy. This type of deal has been favoured by the Rossoneri this summer as they acquired Sandro Tonali in a similar manner. The report notes that a meeting is scheduled with the agent of the defender for next week and this will be a decisive meeting.

Nicolo Schira is reporting Paolo Maldini will make a final approach for Milenkovic this weekend and if the move is held up by Fiorentina then Milan will move decisively to close the deal for Ajer. He notes that the deal with likely be a loan with the option to buy.
