Manchester United remain firmly in the hunt for Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly still firmly in the hunt for Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a strong 2020-21 campaign for his Italian club, making 37 appearances in all competitions, including 34 in Serie A, where he contributed three goals.

Milenkovic's current deal with Fiorentina is due to expire next June, though, and it does not appear that he will be penning an extension, making a summer exit likely.

Man United's interest in the Serbia international had thought to have cooled, but according to La Nazione, the Red Devils are still keen on a deal for the defender.

The report claims that AC Milan are also keeping a close eye on developments, while West Ham United could also allegedly compete for his signature during this summer's transfer window.

Milenkovic - recently linked with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur - has made 133 appearances for La Viola since arriving from Partizan in 2017.
