AC Milan and Inter planning midfield swap
As the transfer window winds down, the two Milanese clubs are looking to continue their long history of player exchanges.
As reported by Tuttosport, Serbian midfielder Kuzmanovic could be headed to the Rossoneri while Italian international Nocerino moves in the opposite direction.
It is thought that Inter coach Walter Mazzarri is keen on signing the 28 year-old Italian, and that Milan have been looking to offload the midfielder in the transfer window, a deal involving Kuzmanovic as compensation could fit the bill.
The player switch would also have little effect on the budgets of both sides, making a deal even more attractive.
After a high-flying 2011-2012 season with Milan which saw him score 11 goals, Nocerino’s form has been dismal, and he will find it hard to crack the starting lineup after the signing of Andrea Poli and the return of Nigel de Jong from injury.
In a similar light, Kuzmanovic’s time with the Nerazzurri has been quite disappointing.
After tallying six goals in 29 appearances for German side Stuttgart two seasons ago, the former Fiorentina man went the entire 2012-2013 campaign without a goal, and is rumoured to be out of Mazzarri’s plans for the upcoming season.
