CSKA Moscow admit Milan transfer target Nikola Vlasic is pushing for a move, but ‘there hasn’t been an offer that satisfies the club.’
The creative midfielder is one of the primary picks for the Rossoneri in order to replace Inter-bound Hakan Calhanoglu this summer.
The asking price is believed to be €30m in cash upfront, but Milan are offering a loan with option to buy for a total of circa €25m.
“Nikola has clarified his position, he wants to fight for European silverware,” CSKA Moscow director Roman Babayev told Sport 24 in Russia.
“However, wanting to do this and getting that opportunity are two different things. There has been and continues to be interest, but there hasn’t been an offer that satisfies the club.”
The Croatia international turns 24 in October and his contract with CSKA runs to June 2024.
His previous clubs include Hajduk Split and Everton, moving to Russia initially on loan from Everton in 2018 and then permanently a year later.
Vlasic plays primarily as a creative midfielder in the trequartista role, but can also work on the right or left in a supporting position.
He contributed 12 goals and six assists in 34 competitive matches for CSKA Moscow last season.
