CM.it: Milan and Inter join pursuit of Lille star courted by Liverpool and Spurs – €40m+ needed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and rivals Inter are keen on signing Lille defender Sven Botman during the upcoming summer window, according to a report.

Botman is believed to be attracting the interest of a number of top European clubs having made 32 league appearances and 8 Europa League appearances this season, impressing in a side that is fighting for the Ligue 1 title. He has represented the Netherlands at youth levels U15 through U20 and is tipped to have a big future with the national team too.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.it, the Dutchman is amazing everyone with Lille but the problem with this is that his asking price continues to rise, and now the French club want more than €40m to let go of the former Ajax star.

Inter and Milan are watching him but it will be really difficult to bring him to Italy given the price mentioned and also the competition, as Spurs and Liverpool have been linked (via TEAMtalk).
