Racing club starlet Carlos Alcaraz, who is rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, is the subject of interest from both AC Milan and Inter Milan, according to his agent.
Since making his senior debut for Racing aged just 17 in January of 202, Alcaraz has continued developing impressively and the youngster is thought to be on the wishlist of several clubs across Europe.
Marca reported back in the summer that Tottenham were one of the clubs following the midfielder closely, having sent scouts to Argentina to watch him in action.
The report added that Racing Club valued Alcaraz at $20m (£16.4m) and that the likes of Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Juventus, Inter and AC Milan, Arsenal, Wolves and PSV Eindhoven also had their eye on the player.
However, the teenager ended up staying put at the Argentinean club and is having another solid campaign. While the midfielder is yet to make his senior debut for the Albiceleste, his first cap cannot be too far away if he continues developing at the pace that he is currently.
Alcaraz’s agent Sebastian Lopez has now revealed that Milan and Inter both wanted to snap up his client in the summer, with the Nerazzurri continuing to have an eye on the midfielder.
He told Tuttosport: “I spoke to both clubs (Inter and AC Milan) last summer. I was told they were watching Carlos.
“Then, Milan signed Charles De Ketelaere, who was already playing in Europe. Inter have continued to follow the player; (they) and Milan are two top clubs.
“Inter are particularly interested. Perhaps also because of (former Argentina international) Diego Milito and Lautaro Martinez. But nobody can question the importance of Milan.”

Up-and-coming Argentinean players very rarely tend to make a straight move to the Premier League, with Man City’s Julian Alvarez being a rare exception. The Serie A usually tends to be their landing destination in Europe and I would expect that to be the case with Alcaraz as well.
