Reports: Milan in talks with Barcelona over defender with €12m asking price set – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Barcelona left-back Junior Firpo as they look to complete the squad this January, reports claim.

As reported by Calciomercato.it, Barcelona have set their minimum request for the sale of the 24-year-old left-back at €12million, which would be the amount they would need to receive to avoid making a loss on the balance sheet.

Barcelona would let the former Betis star Firpo leave outright or on a loan – of at least €3-4m – with an obligation to buy. In the next few days we will understand if these are conditions that Milan will decide to accept.

Meanwhile, il Correire della Sera (via MilanNews) are reporting that Milan have fixed midfield and attack with Meité and Mandzukic and are negotiating with Chelsea for centre-back Tomori. However, other signings are not to be excluded.

Firpo is indeed a target and he is viewed as a potential deputy to Theo Hernandez, and Paolo Maldini is talking to the LaLiga giants but it will not be an easy deal.
