GdS: Milan interested in Bordeaux star but face competition from Arsenal and Spurs

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face competition from England and from France in the race to sign playmaker Yacine Adli from Bordeaux, according to a report.

It is now well known that Milan are on the hunt for a new attacking midfielder to replace Hakan Calhanoglu and while the same names have emerged – like Isco, Nikola Vlasic, James Rodriguez and Marcel Sabitzer – occasionally a new link pops up.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan have set their sights on Yacine Adli, a versatile 21-year-old who has shown his impressive talent and his versatility, being able to play both as a central midfielder and as a playmaker, but the Rossoneri are not the only club on his trail.

That is because the former PSG talent is also admired by Tottenham, Arsenal and Lille. It comes after L’Equipe reported that Milan seem determined to continue shopping in Ligue 1 and have sent a €10m bid for Adli. His profile is particularly admired by Paolo Maldini, who is convinced by the potential of the former PSG man, who had 2 goals and 5 assists in the league last season.
