As Italian website Calcio Mercato brings some news on the future of the AC Milan defender Mateo Musacchio today, there’s some hope for the Premier League clubs who are interested in signing the 28-year-old.

The outlet claims that Fulham and Watford both made approaches to sign the player in January, but were both blocked by the Serie A side.

At the time, Musacchio was not for sale, with manager Gennaro Gattuso counting on him for the rest of the season. But maybe things could change soon.

Calcio Mercato claims that the player’s rise this season would change his price, and that’s what would make Milan consider a summer sale.

According to the claims, that the player’s contract expires in 2021 also makes Musacchio an interesting potential sale, and an important offer would make the Rossoneri evaluate the situation.

Milan paid €18m to sign Musacchio from Villarreal in 2017, and they would certainly demand more than that from Fulham, Watford or anyone else.
