CM: Milan still interested in Bologna star – Inter join race with affordable asking price set

By Oliver Fisher -

There could be a derby in the market between AC Milan and Inter for Bologna midfielder Mattias Svanberg, according to a report.

The young Swede score his first brace in Serie A during yesterday’s 4-1 win over Bologna and he is certainly growing under the guidance of the Serbian coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, having racked up 28 games played so far this season with 5 goals and 2 assists.

According to Calciomercato.com, Svanberg has entered Milan’s radar and he is being closely watched by chief scout Geoffrey Moncada. The Rossoneri had already made inquiries in January as part of the discussions for Takehiro Tomiyasu and have not given up. He fits the vision perfectly as a young player with high potential who can play in a 4-2-3-1 and does not have an astronomical salary.

In addition to Milan, the interest of Inter and some Premier League clubs such as Southampton and Leicester should be noted. The 22-year-old arrived from Malmo for €4.5m, but now it would take €20m to snatch him from Bologna. The big names call and, Svanberg is ready to answer.
