Nikola Kalinić appears as the likeliest option for the attack and an agreement for around €25m can be reached soon.
The search for a striker continues and with Andrea Belotti staying at Torino and the situation of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang getting more and more difficult by the day, the Nikola Kalinić option is getting more and more concrete.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio and Alfredo Pedullà, Kalinić is getting closer to Milan and the next 7 days will be very important to understand if an operation can be made. Pedullà claims that Fiorentina are looking for €25m + €5m in bonuses for Kalinić, but would also be willing to accept counterparts like Luca Antonelli in a deal.
Di Marzio believes that the constant contacts between the parties will result in an agreement for around €25m. Sky thinks that Milan would be willing to pay €20m plus bonuses, bringing the total sum to €25-27m. Fiorentina are likely to replace Kalinić with Genoa’s Giovanni Simeone.
Everton are also interested in Kalinić, but the 29-year-old Croatian wants Milan and already made it public over a month ago. Fassone and Mirabelli keep working on a striker, and Kalinić seems likeliest.
