Reports have emerged claiming that AC Milan are scrambling to beat Stoke City to the signing of Porto midfielder Giannelli Imbula.
Imbula only moved to Milan last summer, but is up for sale at Porto after failing to settle in Portugal.
The 23 year-old is wanted by Milan, which are concerned by comments from Stoke City boss Mark Hughes today.
“They circulate many names linked to us, Imbula is one of them. We are interested in interesting players,” said Hughes.
“If one of these is available, we will try to take him.”
The talented midfielder is also being watched by Arsenal and Chelsea.
