Sky Italia via are reporting that AC Milan have an agreement with Atalanta winger Josip Ilicic and this has been in place for quite a while. The Rossoneri want the veteran as a reinforcement for the attack but have not managed to find an agreement with the club on a transfer fee. The player had struggled last season due to issues off the pitch but is nonetheless a potent attacker with lots to offer. Ilicic will almost certainly leave this summer so it remains to be seen if Milan can find an agreement to sign him.

Tuttosport via are reporting that Milan are only willing to pay a small fee at the moment and not the 8 million being requested by the Bergamo based club. Milan are considering waiving their 3 million euro bonus on Matteo Pessina to sign the player. are reporting that Milan want the player to be a versatile depth option covering for Saelemaekers on the wing and Diaz in the middle. The player has Champions League and Serie A experience which is desirable. Most importantly, his arrival does not rule out the arrival of a start for either of the two positions.
