French reports suggest Milan have made a formal offer for LOSC Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, but Arsenal are preparing their own bid too.
The 24-year-old has long been a target for top clubs, as Barcelona had tried to approach him over the summer, but failed to agree a transfer fee, hampered also by a knee injury.
Now the Corriere dello Sport claims Milan have put forward the first official proposal to buy Sanches in January.
This is confirmed by le10sport in France, who go further and warn that although the bid is not yet in writing, Arsenal are very strong on Renato Sanches and will make their move very soon.
Renato Sanches already has 32 senior caps for Portugal, in which he scored three goals and also provided three assists for his teammates.
Milan already have a good working relationship with LOSC Lille, having signed Mike Maignan over the summer to go in goal.
