Chelsea Have Entered A Hotly Contested Race To Sign Fiorentina Defender Nikola Milenkovic
After the upcoming season, Milenkovic's Fiorentina contract will expire. Last year, the 24-year-old was a regular for Fiorentina, but because his contract is up, they might have to sell him this year.
Multiple clubs are reportedly interested in signing him this summer, and he could cost around €15 million, according to Firenze Viola. The Serbian defender is being monitored by Tottenham, Chelsea, Juventus, and Inter Milan, among other teams.
It comes as no surprise that Chelsea is looking to add a defender this summer; therefore, paying a modest sum to acquire Milenkovic could be a wise choice if other areas need strengthening.
Since Milenkovic has been a consistent performer at the highest level for a number of years, Chelsea would be able to devote a sizable portion of their transfer budget to the purchase of a striker.
Chelsea may prioritize this position along with another center-back because they are lacking in the attack department after losing Romelu Lukaku.
However, it’s not going to be easy to win the battle to sign him, with three other elite clubs in the race for his signature.
