AC Milan have a number of players that they could put forward as counterparts in deals to land other targets, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com states that the Milan management are always looking for opportunities and ways to reduce the cash outlay needed to secure big targets, as seen in the Rodrigo De Paul case with cash plus players offered to try and hit the €35m asking price.
In this regard, defensive duo Andrea Conti and Mattia Caldara could be put forward in negotiations. On the right-back is Genoa, who also closely observes the centre-back Caldara, who is followed by Cagliari and Verona. Caldara was purchased for €36m and cannot be sold off, with both players coming from disappointing seasons too.
Samu Castillejo wants to stay at the club but he does not appear to be part of the project, with Real Betis and Espanyol interested. Jens Petter Hauge refused to join Udinese and wants to stay as well, but given Milan paid only €6m to sign the Norwegian, there is the possibility of recording capital gains.
Lorenzo Colombo and Daniel Maldini are interesting profiles in terms of younger players, while Tommaso Pobega could be shipped out after he returned from a positive loan at Spezia, with his future still a puzzle.
