Tuttosport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are looking to add a top quality right winger to the squad this summer after missing a game changer in that position for years now. Milan will be looking to allow Samu Castillejo to leave and thus will look for someone who can alternate with Alexis Saelemaekers and give Milan more attacking options up front. The report notes that Ricardo Orsolini from Bologna and Jonathan Ikone from LOSC Lille are the top targets at this point. They are valued at 20 and 30 million euros respectively.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Milan have been watching Ikone since he burned Milan in the Europa League earlier in the season. The right winger has been impressive in Ligue 1 and with the France U21 side and is valued at between 25-30 million euros.

22 year old Ikone has 7 goals and 6 assists in all competitions this season as he has helped Lille battle for the top spot in France. The striker came up through PSG’s Academy and has also played for Montpellier.
