LaLiga Santander”FC Barcelona v Villarreal CF”

Gianluca di Marzio via MilanNews.it is reporting that AC Milan have once again - following last summer and winter - registered their interest with FC Barcelona for left back Junior Firpo. The 24 year old is considered a top option to be Theo Hernandez back up and could develop to be a starter for Milan. The player is reportedly open to the move now as he has fallen out of favour under Ronald Koeman as a deal seems possible.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting the same that talks between the clubs have been reopened.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan have chosen to follow the track of Firpo again but the outlet notes that it is a complex deal to pull off. The likely track would seem to be a loan with an option to buy.

The youngster played just 18 games for Barcelona last season where he scored 1 goal and provided 1 assist.
