AC Milan have opened negotiations with Inter Milan regarding Alessandro Matri with Zradvko Kuzmanovic being offered.
The Rossoneri are desperate to offload the striker they bought last summer with Sampdoria and Fiorentina showing interest.
According to Sky cross-town rivals Inter have contacted Milan and are willing to offer Zradvko Kuzmanovic in a swap deal.
Milan are thought to be interested in either Saphir Taider or Mateo Kovacic from the Nerazzurri roster but will have a hard time trying to sign either.
Chelsea’s Michael Essien and Hellas Verona’s Jorginho are among other midfield options the Rossoneri are hoping to capture.
Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly interested in a dynamic midfielder who can switch from attack to defense who is eligible for the Champions League.
English clubs such as West Ham and West Brom have also registered an interest in loaning Matri.
