AC Milan’s manoeuvres in the transfer window are not stopping with the midfield and the attack because they are also looking at a new right-back, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Milan CEO Giorgio Furlani yesterday had a first direct contact with Torino regarding right-back Wilfried Singo, who is seen as an opportunity to seize given his deal expires in a year.
The Ivorian is held in very high regard by the management, but city rivals Inter are also thinking about Singo in what would be yet another mercato derby after Marcus Thuram and Davide Frattesi.
Milan have taken concrete action by also offering Junior Messias as part of the deal, but at present Torino would prefer €10-12m in cash if they are to part with the 22-year-old.
The Rossoneri are not in desperate need of a new right-back and will only strike if something emerges that is too good to turn down.
Ivan Fresneda is another name that Geoffrey Moncada likes, but Real Valladolid’s requests are considered too high and Pioli wants a player with more experience like Singo.
