Mariano for Milan, Silva to Sevilla?

Milan are reportedly targeting Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz, while Andre Silva could return to Sevilla, but Angel Correa remains a problem.

The Rossoneri are still seeking a reinforcement in attack to join Krzysztof Piatek and Rafael Leao.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia, a new name on the list is Mariano Diaz, currently out of the Real Madrid squad.

He had also been proposed to Roma, but they are no longer interested now Edin Dzeko has signed a contract extension.

Milan are prepared to step in and directors including Paolo Maldini are expected to fly out to Spain today for negotiations.

There is more business to be done with La Liga clubs, as Andre Silva remains like a cork blocking all their transfer activity, with no new forward possible until he has been sold.

After a move to Monaco collapsed due to a medical and Valencia seemed to pull out, La Gazzetta dello Sport point to the Portugal international returning for Sevilla.

The 23-year-old spent last season with the club, scoring 11 goals with three assists in 40 competitive games.

However, Sevilla decided not to take up the €40m option to buy.

If agent Jorge Mendes can propose Andre Silva at a lower price, then perhaps they would reconsider.

Until he is sold, Milan cannot free up the €40m plus bonuses for Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa.

Even then, there are to be more discussions, as Atleti are asking for €50-55m.
