Paqueta-Milenkovic swap?

Milan are, according to Tuttosport, contemplating offering Lucas Paqueta to get Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.

The Viola defender has impressed at the Artemio Franchi and rivals are following his situation in Florence.

The 22-year-old has played 25 games in Serie A this term, contributing three goals in the process, and his value has increased significantly since his €5m move from FK Partizan in July 2017.

President Rocco Commisso has not refused to listen to offers for the Serbia international but Tuttosport claims Fiorentina ask €35m for his services.

Rossoneri outcast Paqueta, who came to San Siro for €38m in January 2019, could be offered as makeweight to help lure Milenkovic to Milan.

But the Brazilian’s value might have dropped after having struggled to convince at the Giuseppe Meazza and the 22-year-old has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.

Paqueta signed a deal until June 2023 when he arrived from Flamengo and the Viola have been linked with the midfielder previously.
