Fabrizio Romano on his podcast via Route One Football discussing the potential transfer of FC Porto winger Otavio in the summer. The Brazil international has an expiring contract this summer and will likely be moving on. There has been a stall in his contract negotiations and as a result multiple clubs are looking at him as an option to boost their attacks.

AC Milan are noted to be part of this race to sign the winger on a free transfer as they struggle with Samu Castillejo and Alexis Saelemaekers who are good but tend to be inconsistent and predictable. Romano is stating that it is very unlikely an agreement on a contract renewal is found hence it should be expected that he will be on the market and that Milan will make a move for the 26 year old. The winger has played 23 games in all competitions this season scoring 3 goals and providing 8 assists.
