Milan ask for Riqui Puig

There are reports Milan are interested in picking up midfielder Riqui Puig on loan from Barcelona in January.

According to Sky Sport Italia Rossoneri reporter Carlo Pellegatti, there has been an initial approach for the 21-year-old Spanish starlet.

He is not getting playing time under new Barca coach Ronald Koeman, so is pushing for a loan spell elsewhere in January.

Milan are not new to this type of deal, as they already have Brahim Diaz on loan from Real Madrid and Diogo Dalot from Manchester United.

This would allow Puig to play in a tough league like Serie A for current leaders Milan and potentially increase his price-tag for when and if Barcelona do eventually sell.
