Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are the closest to signing Kalinic, says Mirabelli, Goal reports.

The Milan director has said that the two La Liga rivals are the closest to acquiring the Croatian striker.

Nikola Kalinic has been in talks with the two Spanish clubs regarding a transfer away from the San Siro, AC Milan Sporting Director told Massimiliano Mirabelli has confirmed.

Kalinic who joined Milan last summer from Italian side Fiorentina has struggled to make a positive impact scoring just six goals in 31 appearances.

It is believed Gennaro Gattuso and the Milan hierarchy are willing to cut their losses on the striker who signed initially on loan with an obligation to buy for £22million.

The 30-year-old who was initially part of Croatia’s 23 man squad to the World Cup was unceremoniously sent home from the tournament after refusing to come in as substitute during Croatia’s 2-0 victory over Nigeria.

“We’ve got many top players in the team and some of them are discussing with other teams. Atleti and Sevilla are the closest to Nikola at the moment but there are other teams interested as well.” Mirabelli revealed to Sky Sports Italia.
