AC Milan are still pushing ahead in their attempts to sign Nicolo Zaniolo from Roma and a new player has emerged as a possible counterpart, a report claims.
According to a report from the online edition of La Repubblica, Milan are insisting on landing Zaniolo as the Roma player is the first choice target of Paolo Maldini to reinforce the attack. In the next few days the Rossoneri will present an official offer to the Giallorossi.
Zaniolo is happy in Rome but was disappointed by the lack of a contract renewal offer, while the capital club want €50m in order to sell him, but Milan are thinking of inserting a counterpart in the deal to lower the cash sum.
The Giallorossi really like Tommaso Pobega who spent last season at Torino on loan, however Milan do not want to lose the 22-year-old midfielder on a permanent basis. Zaniolo is waiting to hear more while Maldini will make his attempt, and then the ball passes to Roma who could fund some additions for Jose Mourinho with his sale.
