Report: Milan or Watford for Cornet

Milan and Watford are reportedly battling it out to sign €20m-rated Olympique Lyonnais attacker Maxwel Cornet.

According to L’Equipe, Milan are interested in Cornet and have ‘already met his camp several times’.

However, the newspaper warns they face competition from Watford, who have opened talks with not only his representatives but also Lyon officials.

The 22-yard-old is capable of playing as a centre-forward or on the wide right and has two goals in eight caps for Ivory Coast.

However, the former Roma target has started just one Ligue 1 game this season, with the likes of Memphis Depay and Bertrand Traore blocking his route into the first team.
