AC Milan and Sevilla are both battling to sign the same two creative forwards on free transfers, according to a report from Spain.
According to Estadio Deportivo, Sevilla are looking at signing 28-year-old Marseille winger Florian Thauvin on a free transfer given he is only under contract until June 30 and therefore represents a golden market opportunity.
The source claims that Milan have presented the Frenchman with an offer of €3million per season net, but the player’s entourage are currently after €4m, so the difference is far from unbridgeable.
The report adds that Sevilla and Milan have also crossed interests when it comes to the signing of Otávio, the 26-year-old Porto playmaker who has expressed his desire to change clubs ahead of next season. They cite Nicolò Schira in claiming that the player hopes to earn above €1million net per season, which is the current proposal from the Rossoneri.
