FC Porto midfielder Giannelli Imbula looks set for a move away from Portugal during the January transfer window, with AC Milan understood to be keen on the tenacious Frenchman.
Imbula was linked with a move to the Premier League during the summer, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all understood to be keen on the box-to-box operator.
Ultimately, Imbula completed a more low-key switch to Porto, but hasn’t truly settled in the Primeira Liga and has been linked with a swift exit from Portugal.
Caught Offside recently reported that Southampton were keen on former Olympique de Marseille player Imbula, but the Saints now face heavyweight competition for the player.
Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic is understood to be keen on the player, according to France Football [via Le 10 Sport], and could be set to liberate the 23-year-old from his miserable stay at Porto—while he has made only five appearances.
