Milan in Junior Firpo talks

According to several reports in Italy Milan are in talks with Barcelona over the signing of Junior Firpo as the Rossoneri want to sign a back-up for Theo Hernandez.

The French defender tested positive for COVID and Milan don’t have another left-back in their team.

Manchester United loanee Diogo Dalot can be deployed on the left, but he prefers to play on the opposite side of the pitch, while Andrea Conti is on the verge of joining Parma on loan with an option to buy.

Calciomercato.com and La Gazzetta dello Sport report the Rossoneri have entered talks to sign Barcelona's defender Junior Firpo who has played 198 minutes in all competitions so far this season.

The 24-year-old joined the Catalans from Betis for €18m in the summer of 2019 and the Serie A leaders want to sign him on loan with an option to buy.

Barcelona, however, are reportedly not open to selling the left-back on a temporary deal and demand €20m to sell the player permanently.
