AC Milan, Inter and Napoli are all keen on signing Lille midfield star Boubakary Soumaré who is expected to leave before the window shuts, according to a report.
The 21-year-old defensive midfielder has been linked a move to Milan over the past couple of weeks as a potential alternative to Tiemoue Bakayoko, with Chelsea continuing to play hard ball over a deal for the Frenchman.
The idea has gathered more and more steam despite the relatively high costs reported by the media, though there has also been three Premier League teams credited with interest.
Now, La Voix Du Nord are reporting that unless the situation reverses, Lille will sell Soumaré before the window shuts.
The 21-year-old is opposed to a return to his former club PSG, as the talented midfielder is looking for a club where he could express himself and once again taste the joys of a European adventure. Inter, Milan and Napoli are clearly positioned, while there are also candidates in England and Germany.
