Muriel close to Milan loan

Milan are close to agreeing terms with Sevilla striker Luis Muriel, beating competition from Fiorentina, according to Spanish reports.

The Colombia international has been linked with a return to Serie A after experiences with the likes of Udinese and Sampdoria.

According to El Mundo Deportes and Estadio Deportivo, the Rossoneri are very close to securing a loan deal for Muriel.

Fiorentina had also been interested, but the 27-year-old would appear to be heading towards San Siro in the January transfer window.

Sampdoria sold Muriel to Sevilla in the summer of 2017 for €21.5m, but he has four goals and four assists in 19 competitive games this season.
