AC Milan have been heavily linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Hugo Ekitike and now another source has claimed that talks are underway.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Lorenzo Colombo is all set to join Monza on what would be a season-long dry loan deal, but the only thing missing is the go-ahead from Milan who would first like to sign a replacement.
As a result, the management are exploring various options and at the moment they are trying to understand if there are the margins to set up a negotiation with PSG for Ekitike.
Chief scout Geoffrey Moncada and sporting director Antonio D’Ottavio know Ekitike well, so much so that they had already reported his name to Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara when he was playing for Stade de Reims.
At the moment, the 21-year-old does not seem to be a part of Luis Enrique’s plans and the forthcoming arrival of Randal Kolo Muani would further reduce the playing time available.
Contacts between Milan and PSG took place during the day yesterday, with the Rossoneri working on the basis of a loan with option to buy deal that does not include an obligation.
