Tuttosport: Milan have a plan if Thauvin does not arrive or Calhanoglu doesn’t renew

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have an interesting free transfer opportunity in mind for is they fail to secure the services of two players ahead of next season, a report claims.

Through our correspondent Pietro Balzano Prota, we revealed how Milan are monitoring Thauvin and Otavio ahead of the summer window as both are potential Bosman opportunities. The former has 84 goals and 60 appearances in 264 games for the Ligue 1 club, while the latter has 17 goals and 45 assists in 168 games for Porto.

According to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive), Otavio is indeed a concrete target for Milan. The versatile forward has become a mainstay of Porto, where he has playing since 2016, and is a player more known for his creativity than his finishing.

The paper claims that the Rossoneri management consider the Brazilian an interesting reinforcement in case of Florian Thauvin’s non-arrival or Hakan Calhanoglu’s departure. Right now the club keeps many roads alive and then chooses the most suitable for the project.
