Everton star James Rodríguez is on Milan’s radar, if reports coming out of Italy are to be believed.
The 29-year-old arrived at the Merseyside club from Real Madrid last summer and, despite struggling with injuries, finished his debut campaign in England with six goals and nine assists.
According to Sky Italia, the Toffees attacking midfielder has ended up in the Serie A side’s list of summer targets.
Stefano Pioli has asked the Rossoneri leaders to bring in a replacement for Hakan Çalhanoğlu, who is leaving the club as a free agent to join their derby rivals, Inter Milan.
The Turkey international’s deal to join the Nerazzurri should be completed soon and having failed to convince him to sign an extension, Milan executives, ‘without haste’, will evaluate the potential players who could replace Çalhanoğlu.
When discussing various options, the Goodison Park star gets a mention, along with AS Roma’s Cengiz Ünder and Atlético Madrid’s Thomas Lemar.
Sky explains a summer move for any of these players, including the Everton man, is ‘not excluded’.
