Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan continue to look for opportunities in the summer market to add a right winger to the squad. The hot name at the moment is that of LOSC Lille winger Jonathan Ikone who burned Milan in the group stages of the Europa League. The 22 year old has been on fire this season with 7 goals and 5 assists in 35 games as Lille fight for the Ligue 1 title with Lyon and PSG. Ikone as brought up in the PSG academy but struggled to break into the first team there. He has been capped by the France national team 4 teams and has scored 1 goal for them. He would reportedly cost upwards of 30 million euros but this may have to be a key investment for Milan given the limited skill sets of both Alexis Saelemaekers and Samu Castillejo in that position.

Calcio Mercato note that Ikone is one of three names being followed alongside Florian Thauvin and Otavio.
