From Spain: Barcelona could replace winger eyed by Man Utd, Liverpool with Milan-linked Marseille star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face competition from Barcelona and a number of other clubs in the race to sign Florian Thauvin from Marseille, a report claims.

MilanNews reported during the final week of the window that the entourage of Thauvin have offered the right-winger to Milan in recent days, with Marseille asking for €15m to part ways with their star, whose contract will expire next summer.

Vito Angele reported on Twitter that Thauvin remains a player that the Milan management are attentive to, especially given the fact he will be available for free next summer, and a number of different sources have since echoed those sentiments.

According to Don Balon, Barcelona are on the lookout for a replacement for Ousmane Dembele who is almost certain to leave in the winter, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all interested.

Thauvin apparently dreams of a move to Barcelona and believes he could replace Dembele in their squad, but there are a number of other teams interested in the 27-year-old such as Sevilla, Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and Leeds United, the report concludes.
