CorSera: Maldini and Massara to scout Hellas Verona defender first hand during San Siro clash

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan management will be keeping a close eye on Matteo Lovato when Hellas Verona come to San Siro on Sunday night, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) recently reported that Milan are keen on the 20-year-old centre-back as they are determined to sign a young centre-back in the January window, adding there has been first contacts between Milan and the management of Hellas Verona to scope out a potential deal.

Il Corriere di Verona (via MilanLive) followed that up on Friday by stating that Milan are one of the clubs interested in Lovato, but not the only one, forcing Verona to put an asking price on the young defender of around €15m.

According to Sunday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), the eyes of technical director Paolo Maldini and sporting director Frederic Massara will be on Lovato to see if he can pass another big test just like he did against Juventus.

Despite his young age, Lovato continues to show that he has what it takes to perform in the top flight having become immovable from the starting XI.
