Many Liverpool fans have been reacting in their droves to links with Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.
According to Sky Sports Germany journalist Max Bielefield on Twitter, both Liverpool and Manchester United have contacted the Serie A club about the 23-year-old’s services.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is expected to repair the damage that has been inflicted on his defensive department during the 2020/21 campaign – due to a huge number of injuries.
This season, Milenkovic has averaged 3.5 aerial duels won per match which is better than any Liverpool player. As well as this, he has amassed 3.2 clearances, 1.6 tackles and only been dispossessed 0.1 times, which illustrates a remarkable level of composure (Whoscored).
Should Liverpool sign Nikola Milenkovic?
With this in mind, supporters were delighted with the rumours and urged the Merseysiders to go in and sign him during the summer. Valued at £25.2m by Transfermarkt, Liverpool will be expected to pay substantially more than that.
Milenkovic excites these Kop fans
“Great player and very underrated”
“Just do it, Great Player!”
“He can be even better then Vidič ever was.”
“Huge if true”
“This guy looks like an absolute animal. Might just be the under-eye bandage and his Serbian descent but whatever…”
