Barca in for Milenkovic?

Barcelona are reportedly looking to sign Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic and do not fear his price tag.

The sport pages in La Nazione claim the 22-year-old is wanted by the Spanish champions and that he could be sacrificed as his club considers raising funds for January.

The defender has been an ever-present for Fiorentina in Serie A this season, scoring three goals in his 12 first games, and was linked with Manchester United over the summer.

Now, Barca have come forward for the youngster, who joined the Viola from Partizan Belgrade in July 2017 in a €5m deal.

They are currently tied with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga on 25 points and are said to be eyeing defensive reinforcements.

La Nazione adds the Serb won’t come cheap but that Fiorentina are willing to listen to offers from a big club to help them generate more funds for January.

Fiorentina - who sit ninth in Serie A - face Hellas Verona on November 24, when they return to action after the international break.
