AC Milan have been heavily linked to former Giampaolo talisman and current Arsenal star, Lucas Torreira. The player has admitted he misses Italy and playing in England has been difficult for him.
He has also shown interest in a reunion with Marco Giampaolo at Milan but his price tag is the issue. According to Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Nicolo Schira, Unai Emery refuses to lose the player.
Arsenal view the player as nontransferable and value him at around €50 million. Milan most likely cannot meet this asking price and will turn their attention to one of the many other midfield targets.
Giampaolo was quoted as saying the player was his “dream” signing but the signs now point towards the dream not becoming a reality. Other midfield targets include Jordan Veretout from Fioretina, who has interests from Roma and Stefano Sensi of Sassuolo who has an agreement with Inter already in place.
