Stuttgart defender and Milan target Serdar Tasci is keen for a move to the Rossoneri this summer, says his agent, but competition comes from Barcelona.
The German international defender of Turkish descent has been linked with a €12m move to San Siro as a replacement for the departed Thiago Silva.
According to his representative, it is a move that the 25-year-old would welcome, even if competition for his signature carries some strong names.
“The player really loves the club and I must stress that since he was a child he dream has been to play for Milan,” enthused Francesco Di Frisco to Milannews.it.
“We’re talking about a guy who is already a strong player. He’s only 25 yet he is already the captain of Stuttgart, has played over 200 times in the Bundesliga and has managed 15 appearances in the Champions League.
“It is hard to find people at that age with this experience.
“Certainly, Stuttgart do not want to lose their captain. But, if they fix a price and a buyer is willing to pay it and the player wants to leave then it is difficult to keep hold of him.
“There’s a lot of competition for him. Around him are Barcelona and clubs in England - Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested.”
