AC Milan are looking to complete the signing of Monaco full-back Fodé Ballo-Touré, according to a report.
SportMediaset (via MilanLive) writes that Milan are looking to secure the signing of Mike Maignan’s former team-mate, but in order to sign the 24-year-old left-back the two sides will need to trim the distance.
The French club are open to letting him leave on loan with an option to buy, but they want that figure to be set at €8m, while Milan are only willing to pay €4m at the moment. However, €6m would be enough for the deal to go through. The parties are in constant contact and the feeling is that the white smoke could come very soon.
Ballo-Tourè made 29 appearances and provided 5 assists last season for Monaco playing mostly as a back-up in the left-back position, and it is no surprise that Milan are scouring the French market yet again.
