Hellas Verona defender Matteo Lovato will have somewhat of an audition on Sunday night when he faces off against AC Milan, a report claims.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) recently reported that the 20-year-old centre-back has ended up in crosshairs of the Rossoneri management, who are determined to sign a young centre-back in the January window.
Not only that, but the paper added that there has been first contacts between Milan and the management of Hellas Verona to scope out a potential deal.
According to the latest from il Corriere di Verona (via MilanLive), Milan are one of the clubs interested in Lovato, but not the only one. This has forced Verona to put an asking price on the young defender, with his current valuation around €15m.
Lovato passed the test against Juventus with flying colours as Hellas got a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena late last month, and on Sunday he will face off against Zlatan Ibrahimovic, meaning Milan will have the opportunity to closely observe a player they are debating making an investment for.
