Milan face competition for Benfica winger Salvio

By Oliver Fisher -

According to the Newcastle Chronicle newspaper, Milan face competition for Argentine winger Eduardo Salvio.

The journal reports that the 26-year-old Benfica player is also wanted by Newcastle United and Sunderland.

Newcastle have a re-inforced budget after the sale of Georginio Wijnaldum to Liverpool, with Moussa Sissoko also likely to leave.

Milan meanwhile have seen their mercato on hold altogether barring the signing of Gianluca Lapadula, as the takeover by a Chinese consortium limps towards conclusion.
