Nikola Milenkovic has been a long-term target of Juventus and the Fiorentina defender also likes the Bianconeri.
He has been one of the finest defenders in Serie A in the last few seasons and Juve keeps monitoring him.
The Bianconeri will sign a new centre-back if Matthijs de Ligt leaves them amidst interest from Bayern Munich, and Milenkovic is one of their top targets.
However, Napoli has emerged as a competitor for his signature as they edge closer to selling Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea.
But a report on Tuttojuve claims the Serbian will turn them down because there are only two clubs he wants to join.
One of them is Inter Milan, and the other is Juve. This means he will be patient and wait for an opening in these teams.
Juve FC Says
Milenkovic is one of the finest names we can add to our group to replace De Ligt.
He is young and experienced, which is a perfect blend for any world-class defender.
At the Allianz Stadium, he will also get better while playing alongside Leonardo Bonucci.
It would be interesting to see if he will be available on the market when we finally sell De Ligt.
should be getting this guy now.
Spot on Martinn – I don’t know why they haven’t yet. Juve will be left empty handed in regards to CB’s once De Ligt leaves. I don’t know why other clubs get transfers done quickly, but with Juve it’s like death by a thousand cuts – we take far too long to make moves.
This guy is, at best, a 4th choice CB. He is too error prone and reckless. He’s not a World Class talent FFS!
