AC Milan have a strong interest in signing Florian Thauvin from Marseille but will not try and sign him in January, a report claims.
The situation seems to have escalated a fair bit in recent weeks, as last Friday Maldini admitted during an interview with Telefoot that he is a ‘very interesting’ profile that the club are following.
According to what is being reported by Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan), the Milan management are currently planning to sign him on a free transfer ahead of the 2021-22 season and therefore not in the upcoming January window.
That is because they are focusing on the pursuit of a centre-back when the window reopens, something that was missed in the last mercato. Nonetheless, there is an offer on the table to the France international worth €3.5m net per season.
