Carlo Pellegatti via is reporting that he is confident AC Milan will sign Florian Thauvin from Marseille in the summer as he has stated for a while now. He makes some interesting notes about potential issues that may arise. He notes that Thauvin's salary is unlikely to be an issue but notes that the commission to his agents could be a stumbling block for the deal. The Rossoneri consider the fees to be excessive. The player reportedly has a desire to play for Milan and the management are weighing up the opportunity.

Corriere dello Sport via are reporting that Thauvin is one of three targets for the summer transfer window for Milan but note that the France international is the priority to take the starting right wing spot. The player is reportedly liked by Maldini and Massara. The other names being followed are Matias Vina from Palmeiras and Junior Firpo from Barcelona (unlikely).
