By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have set their sights on Hoffenheim defender Melayro Bogarde ahead of next summer’s transfer window, according to a report.

Melayro is the nephew of former Milan player Winston Bogarde, and joined the youth academy of Hoffenheim from the Feyenoord Academy in 2018.

On 30 May 2020, he made his professional debut for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, starting in a game against Mainz 05, and he has made two appearances for the Bundesliga side so far this season.

According to what Gianluca Di Marzio has told Sky Italia (via MilanNews), Milan and Barcelona have made a first enquiry over the young Dutchman whose contract expires on 30 June 2021.

The two clubs could sign him next summer on a free transfer or as early as January, by agreeing a small compensation fee with the German club.
