Ahead of the start of the new campaign, AC Milan are in the market to bolster their midfield and have spotted FC Midtjylland teenager Raphael Onyedika as a perfect fit for the position.
Reports from Denmark reveal that FC Midtjylland have valued the midfielder, who signed a five-year contract last two years, within the range of €7 – €10 million.
Although the Rossoneri are yet to make a formal offer for the former FC Ebedei midfielder, reports revealed other names are being considered for the position.
According to Tuttosport, following the numerous names that are being linked with a possible move to Milan, Arsenal midfielder Alberto Sambi Lokonga is among the names to have surfaced on the radar of the Rossoneri.
Lokonga moved to the North London club from RSC Anderlecht last season at a fee reportedly 17.50 million euros.
The player, who can function either in the central or defensive midfield positions, featured in 20 Premier League matches for the Gunners without scoring a goal last season.
However, despite several names being linked with a move to San Siro, Milan technical director, Paolo Maldini, and director of football, Ricky Massara, have concluded on Onyedika as their desired target, an Italian paper claimed.
Onyedika, since he joined the Wolves, has scored 4 times, coupled with 3 assists from 55 appearances.
The versatile player, whose main role is the defensive midfield position, can also play the centre-back and central midfield roles proficiently.
