Sky Italia via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are targeting Lokomotiv Moscow's attacking midfielder Aleksey Miranchuk for the summer. The 24 year old is being considered as a creative reinforcement for the midfield as he has 13 goals and 5 assists in all competitions this season. The midfielder has a deal expiring next summer and reportedly is not close to a renewal thus could be available at a cut rate.

Sky Italia also noted that Lokomotiv Moscow are interested in Diego Laxalt and the left back could be inserted into the deal to benefit Milan. Miranchuk has 25 caps for the Russia national team where he has 5 goals and has been a regular starter for his club over the past five seasons.
