Udinese attacker Maicosuel is being targeted by Santos after the Brazilian side failed in their bid to sign Robinho.
The Milan forward had been strongly linked with a move to the Peixe, but they reportedly pulled out of the deal due to the Rossoneri’s lofty asking price.
As such, several media outlets in Brazil have insisted that the Vila Belmiro team are now interested in the 27-year-old.
Maicosuel played just 15 times for the Zebrette last term, and could be available for as little as €5m.
