AC Milan had scouts present at the game between Spezia and Lecce on Sunday to keep an eye on three players, according to a report.
According to Calciomercato.com, Milan were present to watch two transfer targets with the first being Jakub Kiwior of Spezia, who they have followed closely in recent months as have their rivals Juventus.
Kiwior was a protagonist at the World Cup in Qatar with Poland and his valuation soared up to around €15-20m. This is Spezia’s request at the moment, considered excessive by Italian clubs but which does not scare some Premier League clubs who have already targeted him. There have been no concrete offers and rather just enquiries.
The other player that was monitored was Joan Gonzalez, who Lecce signed from Barcelona’s youth academy in the summer. He is now worth €15m, which is more or less the amount Empoli collected for the sale of Asllani to Inter. Milan are fans of the 20-year-old but so are Napoli, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund.
Finally, the scouts also watched Lorenzo Colombo who is on loan at Lecce and has 5 goals and 2 assists in 16 games. The Giallorossi have an option to buy but Milan secured a buy-back, so the management are observing his growth and evaluating him.
