Milan: Witsel in, Lopez, Honda out

Milan are determined to sign Zenit St Petersburg's Axel Witsel, but will likely have to sell Keisuke Honda, Diego Lopez and others.

The Rossoneri were after the Belgian midfielder already last summer, but were ultimately unable to bring him to Italy.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Milan are again trying to pick up the player, but will need to plan carefully around Zenit's request of €35m.

President Silvio Berlusconi reportedly plans on balancing out Witsel's signing with a number of sales.

The most likely candidates to leave the Rossoneri are goalkeeper Diego Lopez, who's been linked with Liverpool, and Honda, who allegedly also enjoys some interest in the Premier League.

There could be more sales however as the two players combined would only make Milan €7-8m.
