Udinese talent Kwadwo Asamoah's agent has denied negotiations with Milan, but reports continue to suggest he is Andrea Pirlo's heir.
It is highly unlikely that Pirlo will extend his contract with the Rossoneri, which expires next month.
“Massimiliano Allegri wants a player with different characteristics in that midfield role,” explained assistant manager Mauro Tassotti.
The man who fits the bill would appear to be Udinese's Ghana international Asamoah, who scored a fine goal against Chievo at the weekend.
