Tuttosport via MilanLive.it are reporting that AC Milan left back Diego Laxalt is wanted by Sporting Clube de Portugal as a summer signing. Milan value the Uruguay international at 10 million euros but reportedly only need 7-8 million to avoid a loss on the books. Milan were trying to sell the defender to Lokomotiv Moscow earlier in the transfer window but the talks seem to have gone cold.

Tuttomercatoweb via MilanNews.it are reporting that Spartak Moscow from Russia, Sporting CP from Portugal and Olympiacos from Greece are all interested in the left back. The report states that loan offers seem likelier.

Another report from Tuttosport via MilanLive.it are reporting that Milan consider the defender to be open for offers but have not seen the right offer yet. Milan will be looking to cut some of the dead weight in the squad as the likes of Lucas Paqueta, Pepe Reina, Ricardo Rodriguez and Tommaso Pobega have already be sold/loaned.
