Journalist: Milan pushing ahead for midfielder deal with Man Utd and Monchengladbach in race

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are battling with Manchester United and Borussia Monchengladbach to land Kouadio Kone from Toulouse, it is claimed.

We reported via our correspondent Pietro Balzano Prota that Milan have accelerated their pursuit of Toulouse’s Kone because they believe him to be the right reinforcement and because competition is growing.

There are four factors that led to this decision: the need for a midfield reinforcement, the belief in the player, the fear of fierce competition and the difficulties of Rade Krunic. This has led Milan to accelerate an operation that was born with the idea of a loan with an option to buy.

According to Ekrem Konur on Twitter, the Rossoneri are not alone in their pursuit as Manchester United and Borussia Mönchengladbach are also interested in signing the teenager.

However, he reports the Milan have had talks with Toulouse over a deal and with the player. Some teams from France are also following Koné’s situation.
