German report claims Milan and Spurs are in five-team battle for Germany U19 winger

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of five teams who are in the race to land Greuther Furth teenager Jamie Leweling, according to a report.

The Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management have thus far deployed a recruitment strategy focused on buying young players with high potential and developing them in order to record capital gains on the balance sheet.

According to German outlet Sport1 (via tbrfootball), Milan are ready to battle a number of sides for German U19 international Jamie Leweling this summer.

Leweling has emerged in Furth’s senior side this season, racking up 15 first-team appearances including three goals and one assist, putting him on the radar of bigger clubs.

Schalke are considered to be leading the race for the winger, the report claims, but Tottenham, Watford and Udinese are also interested.

Leweling predominantly plays as a right-winger, an area where Milan could need depth depending on the future of loanee Alexis Saelemaekers.
