Another Premier League flop is on his way to AC Milan for big money

Nikola Kalinic, who scored seven goals in two years at Blackburn Rovers, is set to join the Milan revolution

AC Milan are undoubtedly winning the transfer market at the moment.

But among the Leonardo Bonnuccis, Andre Silvas and Hakan Calhanoglus who have joined the ‘Make Milan Great Again’ project are a few players you wouldn’t expect to wash up at the San Siro.

Take Fabio Borini, for example. Eight goals in three Premier League years doesn’t exactly scream prolific.

Now Borini could be joined by another Premier League flop.

Nikola Kalinic, who scored seven Premier League goals in two years at Blackburn Rovers, is set to joing Milan after rebuilding his career.

Kalinic left Blackburn in 2011, initially joining Dnipro before heading to Italy to link up with Fiorentina.

Twenty-seven goals in 68 Serie A games for the Viola have convinced Milan he’s the man to build their new look attack around.

Kalinic will move to Milan in a deal that could end up costing around £30million, according to Corriere Della Sera.

The report claims Milan have been waiting to return from their pre-season tour- which included a 4-0 win against Bayern Munich- to announce the deal.

From Ewood Park to San Siro. He probably wont be able to tell the difference.
