Report: Milan in ongoing talks with Jovic

Milan are reportedly in ongoing talks with Real Madrid, hoping to bring Luka Jovic to San Siro on a two-year loan with an option to buy.

Journalist Nicolò Schira claims the Rossoneri have made the former Eintracht Frankfurt striker their priority this summer and are trying to bring the 22-year-old on loan from Los Blancos.

After scoring 25 goals in 54 Bundesliga matches at Frankfurt, the La Liga giants paid €60m to bring Jovic to Madrid, but he has struggled to find his feet in the Spanish capital.

Paqueta plus cash for Florentino?

Benfica are prepared to take Lucas Paqueta in an exchange with Florentino Luis, claim reports, but only with an additional €15m cash sum.

Paqueta is not part of the Rossoneri’s plans and has disappointed since his €38m move from Flamengo in January 2019.

Fiorentina have also shown interest, but would want the Brazilian on a two-season loan rather than an outright purchase.

According to Calciomercato.com, Benfica are eager to snap up the 22-year-old in an exchange deal with long-term Milan target Florentino.

Inter look at Freiburg defender

Inter have reportedly set their sights on SC Freiburg centre-back Robin Koch, but face competition from Napoli and Benfica.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Nerazzurri see the German defender as a potential reinforcement for Antonio Conte’s squad.

Koch is already a senior Germany international with two caps under his belt.

Perin: 'Ronaldo is always available'

Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin says Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo ‘is not arrogant’ and ‘a true top player, always there for everyone’.

The 27-year-old from Latina has kept three clean sheets in nine games since his return to Genoa, reclaiming the starting position, but he was only a few steps away from a move to Portuguese side Benfica last summer.

After becoming the third choice at the Allianz Stadium, Perin sought a new challenge and reveals how Ronaldo helped him during his projected move to Lisbon.

Milan try again for Florentino

Milan will make another attempt to sign Florentino from Benfica this summer, perhaps including Lucas Paqueta as part of the deal, claim reports.

The 20-year-old midfielder was already a strong target last year, but they were put off by the €120m release clause in his contract.

Benfica were also not prepared to let him leave on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season, demanding only a guaranteed purchase.

According to Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri are back in the running for Florentino, who has a contract until June 2024.

Paqueta floated by Benfica for Florentino

Reports are growing that Benfica have targeted Milan flop Lucas Paquetà, so could include Florentino Luis in an exchange deal.

The Rossoneri paid Flamengo €38.4m plus bonuses in January 2019, but the Brazilian midfielder has not lived up to expectations and was already on the market mid-season.

In order to avoid making a loss on the 22-year-old, Milan need to get at least €28m, which is looking increasingly unlikely in the current climate.
