Milan swap De Sciglio for Zaza?

Milan and Juventus could consider a swap deal involving Mattia De Sciglio and Simone Zaza, reports suggest.

Zaza was on the verge of a move to Wolfsburg, but the transfer collapsed after the Bianconeri couldn’t agree on a transfer fee.

The Diavolo are known to be interested in the striker, and calciomercato.com reports that a possible swap deal is being considered.

The website claims that Juve offered a €5m loan with €20m obligation to buy for De Sciglio, but that was rejected as the Rossoneri need money for the transfer market immediately.

However, with Zaza valued at €25m and De Sciglio around the same, a swap deal could benefit both clubs, as Milan could strengthen the attack without making any sales.

It’s likely Zaza would find more space at San Siro than Juventus Stadium, while De Sciglio could act as backup to Dani Alves, with Stephan Lichtsteiner linked with an exit.
