Kris Ajer remains a target for Italian giants AC Milan as they plot a move for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.

Reports in Italy suggest Milenkovic is chief Paolo Maldini's priority central defensive target after the club signed Simon Kjaer on a permanent deal. But Ajer is still being watched by the Serie A club who could make a move for Celtic's player should they fail in their quest for Milenkovic.

Calciomercato also claim Strasbourg's Mohamed Simakan is another target for the backline. The same publication have hinted that Milan do not plan to spend more than £30million, which could potentially mean Ajer is the most affordable option.

Leicester City have been linked with a move for the Norwegian in recent times but Hoops manager will be desperate to keep hold of the player as his side seek 10 in a row this season.
