Luca Marchetti of Sky via Football Italia is reporting that Udinese are planning to reduce the asking price for right winger Rodrigo de Paul who is a top target for AC Milan this summer. The report notes that his club could take 30-35 million euros down from the original asking price of 50 million euros.

Il Milanista are reporting that De Paul is top of the list to reinforce the attack either at right wing for Samu Castillejo or central attacking midfield for Hakan Calhanoglu this summer. The 26 year old Argentina international is valued at 40 million euros hence English clubs such as Liverpool and Leeds United currently have an edge. Milan will reportedly attempt to lower the sum with a player plus cash deal using one of the youngsters on the squad.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that De Paul will almost certainly leave Udinese this summer as he is overdue for a step up despite him being the captain of his side. The winger has not pushed for a move away despite the numerous requests and his high valuation. In Italy, Inter Milan, AC Milan have been keen while Juventus and Napoli have also been watching him. From abroad, Atlético Madrid seem very interested in a move whilst Valencia are also in the mix.
