CM: AC Milan face transfer battle with Spurs to land France U19 international star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face a transfer battle with Premier League side Spurs in the race to land French defender Jean Marcelin, a report claims.

It was claimed earlier in the week by Gianluca Di Marzio that Milan are targeting 19-year-old Jean Marcelin from Auxerre, who has played 15 times in the league so far this season having fully broken into the senior side.

Marcelin has also established himself as a France U19 international and is earning rave reviews for his performances in France.

According to Calciomercato.com however – who cite English sources – the Rossoneri face competition from England in the race to land the teenager.

The outlet claims that Spurs have registered interest in Marcelin too and could rival Milan for his signature.

It is not the only young Ligue 1 defender Milan are linked with though, as Calciomercato.it reported that Saint-Etienne’s Wesley Fofana is drawing admirers with Milan joined by Everton and RB Leipzig in their interest.
