The agent of Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has reached out to AC Milan to gauge whether there is any interest in his client, it is claimed.
The Rossoneri are firmly in the market for a new defender with Jean-Clair Todibo seemingly the primary target now having moved on from Merih Demiral.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it) that the Bianconeri were asking for €40m for the Turkey international – enough to put Milan off – with Rugani being lined up as an alternative, while the pursuit of Todibo is seemingly in the balance as Maldini and Boban are growing ‘impatient’.
Sky Italia recently stated that Juventus have put Rugani on the market with an asking price of around €25million, with Arsenal and Leicester ahead of Milan at that point in the hunt for his signature.
According to Sportitalia journalist Alessandro Jacobone though, Rugani’s agent has in fact contacted Milan to see if there is any interest from the Diavolo in his client.
The 25-year-old is heading for the exit door this month, and at the moment it is described as just a simple survey from the player’s representative.
