The transfer window is about to peak in terms of activity, and in Serie A there are major moves afoot.

Giacomo Iacobellis of TuttoMercatoWeb has this morning dropped some pretty interesting updates on the centre-back situation across the Italian peninsula.

Fiorentina man Nikola Milenkovic is in demand, with Inter keen on the Serbia international if they lose Milan Skriniar to PSG.

Juventus are also interested, if they sell Matthijs de Ligt to Chelsea. There is apparently a “new offer” from us for the Dutchman.

Then there’s Napoli, also watching Milenkovic, also in case their defender (Kalidou Koulibaly) leaves. The Senegal star has the same agent as Milenkovic, to make things even more complex. Chelsea have also been linked to the Napoli man. His price is apparently set at €40m, double Milenkovic’s €20m tag.

Did you follow all that? Good, it’s all going to get a lot more complicated once these moves start actually happening.
