By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are keeping contacts alive with the entourage of Porto attacking midfielder Otavio, according to a report.

Through our correspondent Pietro Balzano Prota, we revealed how Milan are monitoring Otavio ahead of the summer window as a potential free transfer opportunity.

A number of outlets have since followed that up by confirming the Rossoneri’s interest in the Brazilian, with some even going so far as to say a contract offer has been tabled to the 25-year-old.

Now, an update has arrived through Calciomercato.com, who report that Milan are keeping alive contacts with the agents of the playmaker, who has 17 goals and 45 assists in 168 games for Porto.

The Rossoneri are in the running for the player, who destined to leave Porto on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season. Paolo Maldini is a big fan of potential low-cost opportunities – like Florian Thauvin – and this represents another.
