Milan are keeping an eye on Cameroon and Marseille stopper Nicolas N’Koulou, the Italian giants have confirmed.
“He is a player who we have been monitoring since he was with Monaco,” Diavolo director Ariedo Braida told La Provence.
“At the minute, we already have six players in his role and therefore he is not at the top of our list. It’s also not that easy to sign players anymore because of asking prices.
“It would be difficult to sign him during the January transfer window, but we’ll continue to watch him to understand whether he could do a good job for us in the future.”
N’Koulou, 22, signed a four-year contract with his current club after leaving Monaco in June 2011.
