Milan are in confirmed negotiations with Lecce for versatile full-back Djamel Mesbah, revealed his agent.
“At the moment we are in talks, but that is all. I can confirm a meeting this afternoon between Lecce and Milan to talk about Mesbah,” agent Alessandro Lucci told Milannews.
“I am acting as an intermediary for Lecce so the lad can find the right solution. The chat with the Rossoneri went well and he’d certainly be enthusiastic about such a move.”
The 27-year-old Algerian international can play as an attacking full-back or in a more advanced position.
He is seen as the replacement for Taye Taiwo, who failed to impress during his first six months at San Siro.
Mesbah’s contract expires in June, so he would be available for €1.5m and Milan are reportedly offering a four-and-a-half-year deal.
