Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that AC Milan are very close to offloading right Andrea Conti this summer as he is considered excess to requirements at the club given Davide Calabria is the starter and Alessandro Florenzi has just arrived. Milan will not likely receive a huge sum for the player given his contract expires next summer but Sampdoria, Genoa and Atalanta are working on a deal for him. Conti has not been called up for the final two pre season friendlies as well as the opening game of the league.

Antonio Vitiello is reporting that the player is likely on his way to Sampdoria but Genoa are still in the running to sign the former Atalanta man.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Conti is set to leave as the Rossoneri have been looking to sell him since last summer and were close to offloading him in the January transfer window to Parma but they were relegated.
