AC Milan are looking to find accommodation for Charles De Ketelaere and Atalanta are the frontrunners at present, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Atalanta know that Milan will sanction the sale of De Ketelaere if an offer of €28m or more were to arrive, given the disappointing debut season the Belgian had following his move from Club Brugge for €35m including bonuses.
After signing striker El Bilal Touré, La Dea are still looking to invest in their attacking department with money to spend following the sale of Rasmus Højlund to Manchester United.
They have set their sights on De Ketelaere for the playmaker role but they face competition from Aston Villa in the Premier League, PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie and Marseille in Ligue 1.
However, Atalanta have one point of advantage because De Ketelaere himself has made it clear he would prefer to stay in Italy and in Serie A.
