Report: AC Milan eye €40m-rated Marseille star to replace Suso

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are battling rivals Napoli and Inter for the signing of Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, reports in France claim.

A lot of the recent mercato speculation surrounding the Rossoneri has been links with wingers, with it seemingly no secret that Leonardo is hard at work to reinforce the wide areas of the current squad.

Links with the likes of Serge GnabryEvertonMemphis DepayFederico Chiesa and Steven Bergwijn have all emerged recently, though L’Equipe present the name of a new target.

The French outlet claims that Thauvin is looking increasingly likely to leave Marseille this summer, with Serie A trio Inter, Milan and Napoli the three clubs most interested.

However, it would be tough for any of them to land the 26-year-old, who is valued at €40m by his current club. 

The winger has scored 15 goals and assisted 9 in 31 games across all competitions this season, and is apparently viewed as a possibility for the post-Suso era, should the Spaniard leave.
