West Ham United still have an interest in Nikola Milenković, a year after they saw a €25m bid proposal rejected by Fiorentina.
On June 23rd, we carried a report from Sky Italia, who explained the Hammers are ‘pushing’ for the 23-year-old and it was believed a deal could be concluded for a price less than €25m.
The defender has a year left on his contract and there’s no signs of him committing to a long-term deal with the Serie A side.
David Moyes’ side are keen to acquire the Serbia international’s services this summer and have taken the next step by submitting their ‘first offer’.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the Premier League side’s proposal ‘arrived’ at the table of La Viola’s leaders.
The offer is believed to be around €20m, but this figure is ‘still far from’ the demands of Fiorentina chairman Rocco Commisso.
In this short report, there’s no mention of the fee or the range of fee that Commisso is looking for to sanction’s Milenković sale.
With West Ham’s ‘first offer’ not convincing the Italian club’s chief, it remains to seen whether or not they will return with an improved offer.
