Milan will ponder making a bid for Zenit’s Domenico Criscito given the likely exit of Gianluca Zambrotta.
The latter is one of 10 players at San Siro who has a contract that will expire in June and the club will allegedly show him the door.
According to the transfer rumour mill, the Rossoneri may consider making an offer for Italian international Criscito.
The 25-year-old, who has Serie A experience with Genoa and Juventus, has been paired with the Diavolo in the past.
Netting Criscito, however, would seemingly be problematic given that the Russian club had to pay €11m for him last summer.
It remains to be seen whether Milan could afford a similar amount for a left-back who also earns just under €3m a season at present.
