Milan plan Muriel wedding

Reports in Italy on Thursday are claiming that Italian giants Milan are interested in Lecce youngster Luis Muriel.

The 20-year-old striker has caught the eye this season with four goals in 17 games while on loan from Udinese.

The Rossoneri are expected to make some changes to their attacking department in the summer and Muriel may be targeted.

The Diavolo, however, may have to dig deep to tempt Udinese into a sale given the latter club’s history of buying players on the cheap and then selling them on for big fees.

The South American was signed by the Stadio Friuli outfit from Deportivo Cali in June 2010 for just €1.5m. It is now being claimed that he’s being valued at €10m.

The attacker is a Colombian Under-20 international.
