AC Milan are battling rivals Inter for the signing of Chelsea winger Pedro, according to reports from England.
It is no secret that Leonardo and all of the Rossoneri scouts have been busy as of late trying to find a winger to give Gennaro Gattuso this summer.
A lot of Milan’s reported targets – such as Serge Gnabry, Everton, Memphis Depay, Federico Chiesa and Steven Bergwijn – are all relatively young players, but now the club has been linked with a more experienced figure.
English paper the Daily Express claims that Leonardo is a ‘big fan’ of Chelsea winger Pedro, who has nine goals in all competitions this season.
The Spain international spent 11 years at the Nou Camp from 2004-2015, including some of his youth career, before making a £19m move to west London.
Predominantly a right-sided player, Pedro has 37 goals and 23 assists for the Blues in 173 competitive appearances, and could possibly be viewed as a replacement for Suso – whose future at San Siro seems uncertain.
