Report: AC Milan consider Gomez as Deulofeu replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are reportedly eyeing Atalanta forward Alejandro Gomez in case they fail to sign Gerard Deulofeu this summer.

This comes amid reports that the Rossoneri are in the race to sign Keita Balde Diao from Lazio.

Corriere dello Sport claim that new director Massimiliano Mirabelli is planning to open negotiations for 29-year-old Gomez.

Deulofeu is apparently being considered by Barcelona for a possible return to the Nou Camp, so Milan are preparing for that eventuality.

‘Papu’ has scored 14 goals and provided 10 assists for Atalanta in 34 league appearances this season.

Reports suggest no official contact between the sides has been initiated, but with the two teams meeting in Bergamo this Sunday, negotiations could begin soon.
