West Ham transfer news: Nikola Milenkovic deal edges closer amid Kurt Zouma talks


West Ham is closer to a deal with Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, the cost expected to be around PS14 million.

A few elements of the transfer remain to be finalized, but West Ham is hopeful that they can complete it. West Ham is also in talks with Marseille and Chelsea over Duje Caleta-Car. Zouma was West Ham’s first center-back target. West Ham is now considering Zouma as a possible move to the London Stadium. However, the difficulty lies with the valuation of Zouma - Chelsea is believed to want in excess of PS25m – and player's wages. Milenkovic is a 23-year old Serbian citizen who has been with Fiorentina in 2017 and has one year left on the current contract. Last season, Milenkovic played 34 Serie A roles for Fiorentina. In March, he last appeared for Serbia against Portugal in their World Cup Qualifier draw.
