CM: Florenzi declares will but Milan are in no rush – €20m Torino man eyed as alternative

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have not yet made a decision on the future of Alessandro Florenzi as they wish to consider alternative solutions, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com report that on Saturday night at San Siro against Empoli he is ready to move to the left-back position, where he will replace the suspended Theo Hernandez and will once again show just how versatile and useful he is to Stefano Pioli.

Having arrived last summer from Roma on a €1m paid loan witha  €4.5m option to buy, Florenzi has already communicated his will to the management: to stay with the Rossoneri permanently. Milan have not yet made a decision on the future of the player though, who will turn 31 on Friday.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are in no hurry and first want to evaluate alternative solutions such as Noussair Mazraoui of Ajax, who would be available on a free transfer and is already in the sights of Barcelona. The player is represented by Mino Raiola and has been tracked for some time but he does not entirely convince.

Milan would instead prefer to sign the 21-year-old Wilfried Singo from Torino, who in turn are ready to exercise the unilateral option to extend his contract – currently expiring in June 2023 – by another year until 2024.

The problem is the price tag that Torino’s president Urbano Cairo has put on him, as he wants at least €20m for the Ivorian which is an amount considered excessive for a role that does not represent a priority for Milan.

Nonetheless, Maldini and Massara continue to monitor Singo and on Sunday evening they will cheer him on, hoping that he will be put a dent in Inter’s Scudetto hopes.
