Gianluca di Marzio via MilanNews.it is reporting that AC Milan are considering a move for Ajax attacking midfielder Dusan Tadic despite the player being 32 years old. Milan are looking to fill in their no. 10 attacking role following the exit of Hakan Calhanoglu recently. The Serbia international has a wealth of experience and is a very talented creative player in the final third thus would be an interesting deal for Milan albeit a short sighted one. Milan are currently probing the ground to see if a deal will be possible. Tadic had 22 goals and 26 assists in all competitions last season.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Milan have initiated contacts with Ajax over the possibility of a deal as the player seems open to a move.

Daniele Longo is reporting that the idea is concrete at the moment and Paolo Maldini in particular is driving this forward. The versatility of the player to occupy multiple roles across the attack is what is drawing the pursuit of Milan.
