That isn’t to say that the deal is off, however.

The Hammers have been chasing Milenkovic for the last few weeks.

The 23-year-old’s agent has been demanding extortionate fees according to numerous reports including one from ExWHUemployee.

ExWHUemployee drops Milenkovic news

That has led to him exploring alternative transfer targets.

It must be stressed that a deal to sign the Serbian is far from off, however. The situation is that there is currently a stalemate in negotiations due to the player’s agent’s demands.

So there is clearly still a lot that can happen.

Hopefully Milenkovic’s agent backs down, but if he doesn’t, it’s not the end of the world.
