Wolverhampton Wanderers’ chances of signing Nikola Milenkovic this summer appear to be slim.
The Serbia international has recently been linked with a move to Molineux.
Wolves are in the market for a centre-half, and Milenkovic had been touted as a possible option.
But Sky Sports report today that the star is no nearer to a move to the Premier League.
Wolves are apparently ‘wary of the finances involved’. The club have had talks with the player, who has grown frustrated with the lack of progression.
West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur have also been in contact.
Now, Milenkovic could sign a new deal with the Serie A outfit, which would be huge for them given the fact he’s into the final year of his current contract.
Wolves brought in Yerson Mosquera at the start of the window.
But the youngster will need time to settle.
There remains a huge need for the club to sign a central defender with experience.
Frustration for Wolves
It looks like Milenkovic will not be heading to the Black Country this summer.
That’s a shame because he’s a really solid centre-half, who is physically imposing.
Standing at 6ft 4in tall, he is able to dominate in the air, which would help Wolves especially on defending set-pieces.
He’s also a great distributor, with WhoScored recording his pass accuracy at 86% last season.
