Brest director open to offers but insists Faivre ‘hasn’t asked to leave’ amid Milan links

By Isak Möller -

Ever since the summer, Romain Faivre has been heavily linked with a move to AC Milan, who tried to sign him in the final days of the transfer window. And it remains a somewhat hot topic ahead of next month. 

It’s not exactly surprising that the rumours have continued since the summer, especially considering that Milan have struggled a bit on the right flank. Alexis Saelemaekers and Junior Messias have both stepped up a little recently, but it was tough at the start.

In addition, Faivre has continued to perform very well for Brest with seven goals and five assists in 18 appearances this season. In an interview with L’Equipe, as cited by MilanNews, Brest’s sporting director Gregory Lorenzi spoke about the rumours.

“We are very relaxed. Our will is to keep Romain until the end of the season. And he hasn’t asked to leave in January. But if there is an opportunity, which the club cannot refuse, we will evaluate it. But our first will is that he remains, then in the summer we will re-examine the situation,” he stated.

It remains to be seen what the outcome of the situation will be but it seems Milan aren’t too keen on the Frenchman right now. A move in the summer, therefore, is perhaps more likely for the winger.
