Monaco intensify interest in AC Milan defender

Antonini - AC MilanMonaco have stepped up their efforts to sign Luca Antonini from AC Milan.

The Italian has been shortlisted by the newly promoted side despite positive declarations from the player.

Tuttomercatoweb claims Monaco have made contact with Antonini’s representatives with the view of a move.

The 30 year-old has seen less and less playing time following the emergence of Kevin Constant and Mattia De Sciglio at left-back.

Monaco have undergone a massive transformation under Claudio Ranieri with the arrival of several big name signings.

The full-back could join former Milan teammate Flavio Roma should the veteran be offered a contract extension.

Antonini only played nine games last season in all competitions.
