AC Milan are interested in signing Riyad Mahrez to bolster the right wing position ahead of next season, according to a report.
FootMercato report how Milan are in the process of being bought for around €1bn by Investcorp, an investment fund based in Bahrain, and they have plans to make some big signings in the summer such as Sven Botman and Renato Sanches from Lille.
They add that Milan are ‘very interested’ in signing Mahrez, as the 31-year-old Algeria international striker is out of contract in 2023 and his future at Manchester City is currently uncertain. He has 11 goals and 5 assists in 25 league games so far this season, plus 6 goals in the Champions League.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG are also keen on signing the former Leicester man but Milan have ‘decided to join in the battle’. The possibility of playing alongside friend and compatriot Ismael Bennacer could be tempting, while any potential transfer fee ‘would not be a problem’.
