Nikola Milenkovic is expected to sign a new contract extension with Fiorentina, according to Fabrizio Romano. The Serbian international has been closely linked with a move to the Premier League this summer but the move now looks unlikely to happen with the 23-year-old looking likely to extend his stay in Serie A.

Nikola Milenkovic to Sign Contract Extension with Fiorentina

Milenkovic Likely to Partner Nastasic in a New Look Fiorentina Defence

Fiorentina are in the final stages of negotiating a new contract with 23-year-old Serbian defender Nikola Milenkovic. With just one more year remaining on his contract, Milenkovic’s future at Artemio Franchi was in doubt this summer.

Milenkovic has been with Fiorentina since 2017. The Serbian joined La Viola as a 19-year-old after an impressive spell with Partizan. The defender has been a key player for the club over the last couple of seasons, where he has made 127 appearances and scored eleven goals.

The Serbian will likely have a new defensive partner this season. His long-time partner German Pezzella is reportedly closing in on a move to Real Betis. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Argentinian defender is re-signing with Real Betis, three years after leaving the club. Matija Nastasic is likely to replace Pezzella with Fiorentina closing in on re-signing the Serbian. The Serbian’s future has been in doubt following Schalke’s relegation from the Bundesliga last season.

The Future of Dusan Vlahovic Still in Doubt

Fiorentina are yet to decide the future of in-demand striker Dusan Vlahovic. The Serbian is reportedly attracting interest from Atletico Madrid, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. But La Viola are keen on tying the Serbian to a new contract.

Fiorentina president Rocco Benito Commisso recently stated that the club will be willing to let the striker leave if they received a €100 million offer from any potential suitors.
