Milan could make a shock move for Real Madrid’s former Inter playmaker Mateo Kovacic, say reports.
The Croatia international arrived at San Siro in January 2013 for €11m from Dinamo Zagreb before being sold on to Madrid for around €34m including bonuses last summer.
Corriere dello Sport reports today that Rossoneri President Silvio Berlusconi wants to see the team play in a 4-3-1-2 formation and therefore they are in the market for a trequartista.
The newspaper believes the Diavolo could attempt to bring Kovacic back to San Siro, as he has disappointed in Madrid and therefore his valuation has dropped since last summer.
The 21-year-old has made 21 appearances for the Merengues this season, but has yet to score and has provided just two assists.
Tuttosport believe that a move for Palermo’s Franco Vazquez could go ahead, as President Maurizio Zamparini will now accept offers of around €20m for the Italy international.
Rosario starlet Giovani Lo Celso has also been touted as a possible future Milan player, but they could face stiff competition for his signature.
