French reports suggest Milan have offered €14m for Saint-Etienne defender Wesley Fofana, who is also targeted by Leicester City.
According to le10sport.com, the Rossoneri have made a significant step forward in their pursuit of the centre-back.
The €14m proposal would be fairly close to the €20m asking price, or at least puts them in pole position.
Other sides interested in Fofana include Leicester City, Monaco, Lyon and Rennes.
He is only 19, yet has been a regular for Saint-Etienne this season and played in last night’s 1-0 Coupe de France defeat to PSG.
Fofana also scored two goals in 24 competitive appearances this term.
