Milan block Everton arrival?

Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis has reportedly vetoed his club’s pursuit of Gremio winger Everton Soares.

Milan sporting director Leonardo appeared to be closing in on a deal for Everton, but Sport Mediaset claims Gazidis has ‘blocked everything’.

The broadcaster speculates that is due to spiralling costs as business with Brazilian clubs is ‘always complicated’.

It also corroborates Corriere della Sera’s previous report that the former Arsenal executive will make a decision on Leonardo at the end of the season.

The Rossoneri could instead go for Nice attacker Allan Saint-Maximin, who is valued at €25m.
