Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli continues to be linked with a move away from the Rossoneri this summer.
According to the latest report from La Repubblica, Gennaro Gattuso, who has reportedly signed a two-year contract with Valencia and will soon become the head coach of the dormant giants of La Liga, has shown interest in making a summer swoop for Alessio Romagnoli.
Despite being injured and out of the team for the latter part of the campaign, the Italian defender, being the captain of the club, led Milan to their first Scudetto since the 2010/11 season.
However, it could be his last contribution to Rossoneri’s cause as the club management has already demonstrated its unwillingness to hand the 27-year-old a fresh contract extension, meaning that a summer exit from Milan is on the cards for the reputed centre-back.
Lazio have been monitoring Romagnoli’s situation for weeks now but have not reached an agreement over a potential transfer in the summer. The Biancocelesti fanboy’s services are available for free, but it is the nature of the defender’s demands in regard to the wages that has resulted in a stalemate in negotiation between the player’s entourage and the Rome-based club.
Gattuso is close to replacing José Bordalás as the new manager of Valencia. The Italian likes the player and believes that Romagnoli’s best days are yet to come.
