Report: Atletico Madrid, Dortmund among five clubs who want Milan defender

By Oliver Fisher -

There are a number of big clubs interested in signing AC Milan full-back Ricardo Rodriguez, a report claims.

Rodriguez arrived for €15m from Wolfsburg in July 2017 and has made 92 appearances in all competitions for the Rossoneri, but has seen his future thrust into uncertainty this season.

A combination of poor form and the arrival of Theo Hernandez for €20m from Real Madrid over the summer has seen the 27-year-old stuck on the bench for three weeks.

Swiss-German language outlet Blick claim that the Switzerland international is ‘unsettled’ and as such a number of clubs are now eyeing a possible move.

Atletico Madrid, Schalke, Dortmund, Everton and Roma are all also credited with interest in Rodriguez, who has amassed four goals and five assists during his time at the club.

Given that Diego Laxalt is out on loan at Torino and Ivan Strinic left in the summer, Milan would surely have to seek a replacement if they allowed him to depart.

During the summer claimed Milan would look to listen to offers for Rodriguez for a fee of around €20m.
