Benfica in talks to sign Alen Halilovic from AC Milan

Benfica are in negotiations to sign AC Milan attacking midfielder Alen Halilovic, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Halilovic, 24, joined Milan in 2018 but has since been loaned out to Standard Liege and Heerenveen.

The former Barcelona player shot to fame with his performances for Dinamo Zagreb as a teenager.

But he has struggled to follow up on his early potential with failed spells at Hamburg and Milan.

Benfica have a ‘strong interest’ in Halilovic and talks are in progress over a deal for him.

Last winter, Halilovic was close to a La Liga move with Real Betis, Levante or Espanyol.

However, he decided to stay in the Netherlands with Heerenveen for the remainder of the season.

Now a new adventure could begin for the Croatian international with Benfica, led again by Jorge Jesus.
