AC Milan have been joined by Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in the race to sign Benfica starlet Florentino Luis this summer, a report claims.
It is no mystery that the Rossoneri are in the market for a long-term partner to Ismael Bennacer in the engine room of the midfield, and Florentino Luis continues to be persistently linked.
Now, Spanish transfer outlet TodoFichajes have confirmed that Leverkusen have set their sights on the Portugal U21 international.
Their report adds that there have not yet been any contact between the two clubs yet but the Germans plan to make a move before the market opens.
The 20-year-old is on a contract with a €120m release clause which runs until June 2024, but they believe he is available for a deal close to €20m.
