Milan have been linked with making a couple of moves in the Spanish transfer market this summer and reportedly share one target with Napoli.
Valencia’s newly-capped international wing-back Jordi Alba and Villarreal’s Bruno Soriano are reportedly identified targets for the Rossoneri once the season is over, according to the players’ shared agent.
“Jordi Alba? It is true, I can confirm that we are in contact with Milan, also for Soriano of Villarreal, who is another represented by me,” Vicente Fores claimed on Monday to Calciomercato.it.
“Initially with the Milan club there has been only brief contact, but I think that within 20 days to a month maximum, we will meet with [director Ariedo] Braida. I don’t know whether this will be in Spain or Italy.
“Napoli’s interest in Alba? Yes, there have also been talks with the Neapolitans, but it is normal because we are talking about a very strong young man, born in 1989, with a great future ahead of him.
“I stress that he is also followed by Manchester City and Barcelona. A price for Soriano and Alba? I prefer not to dwell on this aspect, it would be unfair for the players’ clubs, Valencia and Villarreal.”
Alba, who only recently made his debut for Spain at left-back, is understood to have a buyout clause in the region of €20m.
