Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanLive.it are reporting that AC Milan are considering Udinese midfielder Rolando Mandragora for the summer after AS Roma pulled their interest. The 22 year old midfielder has been impressive this season but Juventus hold a 26 million euro counter option on him. The report indicates that the Italian youngster could be a good partner for Ismael Bennacer and who is there for a long term project.

Although there is interest, the report notes that Chelsea Tiemoue Bakayoko remains the first option as he is keen on a return. Mandragora could be a concrete option if his price is deemed fair as he is young and has experience in the league. The operation seems difficult as Juventus appear to keen to re-sign and sell the player.
