AC Milan Close In On 25 Million Euro Deal For CSKA Moscow Attacking Midfielder

The replacement for Calhanoglu seems set and Vlasic is an interesting option, lots of room for growth but lacks the experience for the moment.

Russian journalist Artur Petrosyan is reporting that AC Milan are close to signing Nikola Vlasic from CSKA Moscow for 25 million euros plus bonuses. The 23 year old Croatia international used to play for Everton before his move to Russia in 2019 where he has been dominant since scoring 33 goals and providing 20 assists in all competitions from the midfield.

Ekrem Konur is reporting that Milan have agreed personal terms with Vlasic and the player is expected to arrive in Milan shortly to undergo his medicals and complete the move.

Daniele Longo via MilanPosts is reporting that CSKA Moscow have a release clause in place for the attacking midfielder set at 35 million euros but Milan seem to have secured a lower price in the negotiations for the player.

As we reported here yesterday, it seems likely that Milan will go for a one year loan with an option or an obligation to buy.
