GdS: Milan enquire about €15m Serie A defender as Schalke want €35m for Liverpool target

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have two targets on their wish list as they look to reinforce their defensive department in January, a report claims.

According to Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), confirmations have arrived regarding Milan’s interest in Hellas Verona’s 20-year-old centre-back Matteo Lovato, with an enquiry having been made by the Milan management.

Lovato came through the youth system at Genoa but has begun to thrive in Verona, who value ​​him at around €15million with the youngster having appeared in all five of the Gialloblu’s Serie A games this season, putting an impressive display in Sunday’s 1-1 draw away against Juventus.

The paper also adds that Ozan Kabak of Schalke 04 is a target, but what filters from Germany is not good news. The Bundesliga club want to keep Kabak long term and as such have set a €35m asking price, which is far too much for Milan especially with rumoured competition from Liverpool.
