Reports: Milan battling Napoli for signing of Marseille defender on free transfer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Marseille defender Jordan Amavi on a free transfer at the end of the season, reports claim.

According to both FootMercato and TMW, the fact that Amavi’s contract with the Ligue 1 club is winding down and they do not seem to be eager to extend it is something which has caught the attention of two clubs in Italy, one of whom is Milan.

The report adds that the Rossoneri – who are already in contact with Florian Thauvin and his entourage – have a very close eye on what is happening on with the Stade Vélodrome as a couple of their key players could leave for nothing.

However, Napoli would also be interested in the opportunity to welcome the left-back during the summer transfer window without paying any transfer fee, so it could well be a battle between Gennaro Gattuso and his former side for a defensive reinforcement.
