Milan and Inter track Kawashima

Japanese internationals Eiji Kawashima and Shinji Kagawa are linked with Milan, but Yuto Nagatomo feels they are “ready for Inter.”

Reports in Japan suggest that Milan are looking for a new goalkeeper after Christian Abbiati and the main target is 29-year-old international Kawashima.

He currently plays for Lierse S.K. and several newspapers have tipped him to join the Rossoneri.

However, a Japanese international already in Serie A would like to see him and another teammate on the other side of San Siro.

“Kagawa and Kawashima are ready for Inter and, talking to them, they have confirmed to me they would like to play in Italy.”

Kagawa already has experience of playing in Europe, as the 23-year-old attacking midfielder is currently at Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.

There is also a connection with Italy, as the current manager of the Japanese national team is Alberto Zaccheroni.
