Milan renew Montolivo bid

Milan need to replace Mathieu Flamini and it's reported they have made an improved €7m offer for Riccardo Montolivo.

The Rossoneri are looking for a midfielder in the final days of the transfer market after a knee ligament injury ruled Flamini out for five to six months.

According to La Nazione newspaper, this has prompted them to make a new bid for original target Montolivo.

Fiorentina had point-blank rejected the original proposal and declared he would “only be sold abroad.”

However, with time running out and the player out of contract in June 2012, the Viola do not want to risk losing him on a free transfer.

It's claimed Milan have offered €7m for the Italian international, although that is still below the €10m price-tag.

Montolivo had been their prime target before securing Alberto Aquilani on loan from Liverpool.
