AC Milan move for Lille midfielder Sanches as Arsenal bid emerges

 AC Milan are ready to move for Lille midfielder Renato Sanches in January.

The Portugal international is available from the French champions after coming close to leaving last summer.

La Gazzetta dello Sport says Arsenal made a €35m offer for Sanches towards the end of last season, but the deal fell through after the midfielder was injured during the Euros.

Milan are now making a move with Sanches returning to action.

The midfielder is aware of Milan's interest and has let it be known he's open to a move. Sanches' €5.5m salary demands also falls within Milan's budget.
