AC Milan are looking to agree a straight swap deal with Eintracht Frankfurt involving Ante Rebic and Andre Silva, according to a report.
Rebic and Silva swapped places in the last summer transfer window as the Croatia international moved to San Siro and the Portuguese forward went to the Bundesliga on dry two-year loan deals.
Both have exploded in the year 2020, with Silva ending the year on 16 goals for Eintracht while Rebic has 11 goals in Serie A alone since the turn of the year.
According to SportMediaset, Milan will meet with the agent of Rebic – Fali Ramadani – on Wednesday to start the negotiation to make the 26-year-old’s stay at San Siro a permanent one.
Milan are aiming to secure an equal exchange with Eintracht involving André Silva as both clubs wish to avoid spending extra money, but the problem remains linked to 50% resale clause that Fiorentina have on Rebic.
The Rossoneri will also discuss another of Ramadani’s clients in Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic. Napoli has also recently asked for information on the Serbian centre-forward and for this reason Milan want to accelerate.
The Milan management (and future coach Ralf Rangnick) really like Jovic, but his salary at the moment is too high.
Finally, Milan have also targeted Kristoffer Ajer of Celtic, but the interest of Leicester is also strong.
