Tuttosport: Milan’s mercato targets – Everton, Fernandes, Martinez Quarta, Modric

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering moves for two talented South American players plus two in Europe, according to a report.

Thursday’s edition of Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.it) offers a big update on Milan’s mercato plans for January, starting with Benfica’s Gedson Fernandes.

A recent report from Calciomercato.com stated that Rossoneri scouts are continuing to monitor Fernandes, who scored three goals and added six assists in 46 appearances for Benfica in all competitions last season.

They added that Milan tried to sign the 20-year-old in the summer but were put off by his €50m price tag and €120m release clause, though they could return in January.

Now, Tuttosport are also suggesting that a bid in the winter market cannot be excluded, especially if they can reduce the high asking price.

Meanwhile, the paper also claims that Gremio winger Everton Soares remains a target for the Milan leadership.

Calciomercato.com recently stated that Milan made an attempt late in the summer window to try and sign the Brazil international, but failed because of the complex nature of his ownership.

The Rossoneri’s chief scout Moncada is also monitoring River Plate defender Lucas Martinez Quarta, the report continues.

Argentine journalist German Balcarce – who works for lapaginamillonaria.com – stated in August that Milan were in advanced talks over a €22m move for Martinez Quarta.

The 23-year-old centre-back – nicknamed ‘Chino’ – has established himself as a starter for River since his emergence in 2016.

Finally, Eduardo Camavinga is also listed as a target by Tuttosport, a 16-year-old starlet owned by French side Rennes.

Calciomercato.com also recently linked Milan with a move for Camavinga, who has started every game this season as a defensive midfielder.

Tuttosport (via Calciomercato) also report that while Boban wanted to sign Luka Modric in the summer, but Elliott Management decided against the move in favour of sticking with their project of signing young players with potential.
