AC Milan are considering two potential forwards as alternatives to Angel Correa before the window shuts, a report claims.
According to Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica – as cited by MilanNews.it – the most ‘concrete name’ as a back-up option to Correa is indeed Depay.
The Rossoneri leadership have already met with the Lyon forward’s agents, however it will be difficult to convince the Ligue 1 side to sell at this stage, the report claims.
However, La Repubblica also mention Christian Kouamé of Genoa as a potential option, for whom Milan probed at the beginning of the window.
The Ivorian would reportedly be a much cheaper option than Depay and of course formed a partnership with Krzysztof Piatek at Genoa last season.
