A prominent United States soccer journalist hinted of the Italian club’s interest.
LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan has emerged as a potential transfer target for Serie A giants AC Milan.
MLSsoccer.com American Exports reporter Greg Seltzer revealed that Donovan is courting interest from three Italian clubs, including Milan, and hinted that the USMNT captain could be bidding ‘arrivederci’ to Major League Soccer for another spell in Europe.
Writing on his No Short Corners blog Seltzer claims the Rossoneri side are keen to bring the 31-year-old aboard at the San Siro but would prefer to complete a deal before the summer transfer window closes due to the impending January arrival of Japan attacker Keisuke Honda from CSKA Moscow.
The deal appears to be a short-term loan that would allow Donovan to stay fit during the MLS off-season, which begins in October, and would parallel his three previous stints at Bayern Munich in 2009 and Everton in 2010 and 2012.
However, the deal hinges on Milan making it past PSV Eindhoven and into the Champions League group stage after their 1-1 draw in the play-off first leg, with Seltzer revealing that Serie A trio Genoa, Sassulo and Hellas Verona are also keen for the Californian to join their ranks.
