Tuttosport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are working hard to find a new right winger this summer to add some firepower to the attack as the position has been neglected for a while. Alexis Saelemaekers is expected to be the rotation player but not the starter as Milan focus on 22 year old Jonathan Ikone from LOSC Lille. The report notes that Lille value the France U21 international at about 30 million euros hence it will be tough for Milan to negotiate that price down.
Louis Girardi is reporting that there are contacts between the management of Milan and the entourage of the player. He reports that an offer has likely even been made. He is reporting that the offer is a one year loan with an option to buy for 26 million euros which becomes an obligation is Milan win the title.
Ikone would fit in well in Stefano Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 with his pace and dribbling ability, he has 7 goals and 7 assists in all competitions this season as his side in the top spot in France.
