Talks are ongoing between AC Milan and Nice over a possible summer deal for winger Allan Saint-Maximin, a report claims.
It is no secret that Leonardo and all of the Rossoneri scouts have been busy as of late trying to find a winger to give Gennaro Gattuso this summer.
One name that has never gone away though is that of OGC Nice star Saint-Maximin, a player who was heavily linked in January and has been touted as a summer option.
Milan apparently tried to convince Nice manager Patrick Vieira to sell the player on loan with the right of redemption, but were put off by their €30million asking price.
After the last league game, the two clubs will meet to try and formulate a deal, with Leonardo looking for a discount on the current €35m price tag.
For their part, the report claims Milan are confident that they will be able to close the transaction at a discounted price, thanks to the player’s preference to move to San Siro.
