TuttoMercatoWeb say that AC Milan are prepared to wait until next summer to sign rumoured Tottenham target, Lloyd Kelly.
The 25-year-old’s current deal at the Vitality Stadium runs out next summer (Transfermarkt) but there have been some suggestions recently that the Cherries would rather hold on to him and risk losing him on a free transfer since he is central to their hopes of staying in the top flight (talkSPORT).
AC Milan plan on making Lloyd Kelly summer move
TMW have now offered an update on Milan’s pursuit of Kelly, stating that the Serie A club’s interest in the Bournemouth star is ‘very real’.
However, it is alleged that the Rossoneri are aware that the defender does not plan to renew his contract on the south coast and are thus prepared to wait until next summer to sign him on a free transfer.
Finally, the publication adds that Kelly is not the only centre-back on Milan’s radar, with Stefano Pioli’s men said to be also looking at alternatives, including FC Basel’s Finn van Breemen.
Spurs Web Opinion
While Bournemouth might prefer to hang on to Kelly until next summer, one would think that an offer of around £20m for a player with six months left on his contract would be too good for them to turn down.
However, it remains to be seen whether Spurs or any other side would be willing to make such an offer in January.
