Milan want Jankto, Kluivert

Milan are reportedly keen on Udinese’s Jakub Jankto and Justin Kluivert of Ajax, but both deals are difficult in January.

The Rossoneri spent around €200m in the summer, and have intimated that they won’t reinforce the squad in the winter transfer window.

However, calciomercato.it reports that the club is considering two players, but both would represent difficult deals.

The first is Czech midfielder Jakub Jankto, who would provide Gennaro Gattuso with options out wide.

Udinese may not sell in January though, and the Diavolo would face competition from the English Premier League, in particular Arsenal.

While Milan would like to bring Gerard Deulofeu back, it’s not clear if that would actually be possible.

The Spaniard was on loan with the Rossoneri from Everton in the second half of last season.

Barça then activated their buyback option, but the original deal with the Toffees means the Blaugrana can’t then sell him on for at least a year, and Everton get first refusal.

It’s not clear if Deulofeu can be loaned out, but as he’s played nine Liga games so far it’s not likely Barcelona would let him go now anyway.

As a result, Milan are thought to be interested in 18-year-old Justin Kluivert, son of former Milan striker Patrick.

That would present its own difficulties, as the Ajax star is represented by Mino Raiola, who has a poor relationship with Diavolo sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli.
