Antonio Vitiello is reporting that Fiorentina centre back Nikola Milenkovic remains the priority for AC Milan's Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara despite the approach from Celtic FC defender Kristoffer Ajer over the past week. The Serbia international will be chased again however his high price is holding up the deal.

Alessandro Jacobone is reporting that Milan's management will go back in for Nikola Milenkovic on Tuesday this week as the player is intrigued by the idea of joining the Rossoneri. He notes that the President of Fiorentina, Rocco Commisso is playing hard ball and effectively blocking the deal for the moment.

Nicolo Schira reported that Milan made an approach for Milenkovic over the weekend to see if there was any room left to find an agreement. He notes that if there was still a wall being put up, then Milan would move for Ajer as they have scheduled a meeting with his agents this week.
