According to Radio Rossonera’s Pietro Balzano Prota, the Rossoneri have probed the ground with Genoa regarding a potential deal for Ghiglione.

In case they lose a full-back – either in January or in June – then Milan could choose to make their interest concrete and pursue the player more aggressively.
