Milan continue to chase Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic this summer, but the Viola reportedly ask for €40m.
Tuttosport claims the only thing stopping Milan from making a concrete move for the Serbian is the high price tag set by Fiorentina.
The Rossoneri coach Stefano Pioli knows the 22-year-old defender from his time at the club and would love to bring Milenkovic to San Siro this summer.
Reports in Italian media have claimed Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta could be included in the negotiation, but a direct swap will reportedly not be enough for Viola patron Rocco Commisso, as the Diavolo player is only valued at €35m.
