Another day, another centre-back linked with Liverpool FC. This time, it’s a report from Italian outlet Gazette Dello Sport (by way of the Express). Fiorentina’s 23-year old defender Nikola Milenkovic is said to be keen on joining the Premier League when he leaves his club, with Liverpool FC, Manchester United, and Manchester City all sniffing about.

The 23-year-old Serbian’s current contract at La Viola is set to run out in the summer of 2022, so naturally... the Florence-based club will want to offload him soon to not risk losing him for free next year. Fiorentina is expecting a fee in the region of £30million for him.

A regular in the heart of Fiorentina’s defence for a couple of years, Milenkovic has played in 21 out of their 23 Serie A games, with two goals and an assist. He also appeared in the Coppa Italia, where he captained his team twice.
