Inter have asked Fiorentina for striker Nikola Milenkovic as part of a deal for striker Andre Pinamonti.

This according to today’s print edition of Florence-based newspaper Il Corriere Fiorentino, who report that the Nerazzurri have asked La Viola about the inclusion of the Serbian defender in a deal for Pinamonti, who they value at around €20 million.

Pinamonti is a transfer target for Fiorentina, particularly coach Vincenzo Italiano, and they are looking for a way to convince Inter on a move for him.

The Nerazzurri’s interest in Milenkovic could be a key to the deal, although they would still want cash as part of a deal for Pinamonti in addition to the 24-year-old, whose current deal is set to run out at the end of June 2023.

The Nerazzurri would ask Fiorentina for around €5-10 million along with Milenkovic in order to agree a deal fore Pinamonti, with the Serb lined up as a possible replacement if Milan Skriniar leaves.
