AC Milan signed Mateo Musacchio from Villarreal in 2017 and the centre-back was restricted to limited playing time in his debut season when he made only 12 starts in the league.

The Rossoneri replaced Leonardo Bonucci with Mattia Caldara and the latter’s inability to adapt to four-man defence, coupled with his injury woes forced Gennaro Gattuso to field the Argentine in the heart of the back four.

He impressed with his displays and has started in seven games this season, while the former Juventus man is restricted to one appearance in the Europa League.

The South American defender’s form for his club has seen him attract interest from the Premier League, according to Calciomercato.

It’s claimed that Fulham and Watford are the two clubs interested in the player. The report also mentions that Slavisa Jokanovic’s side made an approach for Musacchio, but failed in their attempts to sign him in the summer transfer window.

The Cottagers interest in the centre-half has not faded away and the Italian website suggests that they are ready to make a ‘super bid’, while the Hornets are also in the race for the Milan defender.

Luckily for Milan, their manager did not put the 28-year-old in the list of players that were transferable, which is why the English club failed to land him before the start of the season.

It is unlikely the San Siro outfit will consider parting ways with him, especially after his performances this season.
