AC Milan keen to sign Andrea Ranocchia

Published 1 Comments

AC Milan are the latest club to be linked with making a formal move for Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia, joining Premier League trio Everton, Tottenham and Newcastle.

The Serie A rivals rarely do transfer business between each other, but with the centre-back struggling for game-time at the San Siro with Inter, he could be tempted by making the switch across the Milan barrier.

The 27-year-old defender is growing frustrated with life under Roberto Mancini due to the lack of first-team football, and after falling down the pecking order behind new signing Joao Miranda and also Jeison Murillo, Ranocchia is considering a move away from Inter.

The Italian international, who has 20 caps for his country, has been with Inter since 2011, making 124 Serie A appearances during those four years.

He moved to the club after agreeing to leave Genoa, but in recent months his first-team opportunities have been limited and he's began to feel frustrated within the club.

AC Milan Keen

According to Italian broadcaster Mediaset Premium - per talkSPORT - AC Milan are keeping tabs on Ranocchia's situation and could make a formal move for him in the New Year once the transfer window re-opens.

Milan are on the look-out for defensive improvements and they feel Ranocchia could be a perfect addition.

Premier League Interest

However, they will face competition from the Premier League as Everton, Spurs and Newcastle have all been linked with signing the 27-year-old.

Steve McClaren was eager to sign him during the summer as a potential long-term replacement for Fabricio Coloccini, but a deal never progressed and the defender remained in Italy.

Ranocchia has a contract with Inter until 2019, but with first-team football limited and several clubs interested, he could be on the move in a matter of months if Mancini is willing to sell.
