Man Utd face transfer competition from West Ham for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic

June 24, 2021

MANCHESTER UNITED face a challenge from West Ham to sign Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic.

The Serbian defender has been on the radar of Old Trafford scouts for a number of seasons now.


The 23-year-old is out of contract in 2022 and it is understood he will not sign a new deal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bring in a new United centre-back this summer, in search of a long-term partner for Harry Maguire.

A number of top sides are showing interest in Milenkovic, with Chelsea believed to be keen.

Now Sky Italia are claiming West Ham are also interested in the centre-half.

And they are ‘ready to step up’ their pursuit to sign Milenkovic.

The Hammers have European football to look forward to this term and are keen on strengthening their defensive unit.

Milenkovic is widely-considered to be one of the most talented defenders in Serie A and he may be available for a knockdown price.

Boss David Moyes has been linked with Burnley’s 28-year-old James Tarkowski and has had previous bids rejected.

Now it seems he has decided to identify younger targets and is going all out for Milenkovic.

Milenkovic joined Fiorentina in 2017 from Partizan.

He has become a first-team regular in recent years, playing more than 125 times.
