Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Alphonse Areola at Fulham.
It’s claimed by British media that Milan are linked with surprise move for Alphonse Areola.
The France international joined Fulham from PSG on a season-long loan.
Since his arrival from PSG, Areola has conceded 35 goals and provided 10 clean sheets in 30 games for Fulham.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in France. As a member of France national football team, Areola won 3 caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Milan.
Alphonse Areola is widely regarded as a key transfer target for AC Milan this summer.
Stefano Pioli is a long term admirer of Areola and believes he can get the most out of the France international.
The Italian giants are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
With questions being raised concerning Donnarumma’s future at the club, the Milan manager could well look to Alphonse Areola as an ideal replacement.
According to the report, “AC Milan are eyeing Fulham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola. The France keeper is on-loan at Fulham this season from PSG. And Sky Italia says the Rossonero see Areola as a potential replacement for Gigio Donnarumma. The Italy international is off contract in June. Areola’s form with the Cottagers has led to a recall to the France squad this week. The goalkeeper was offered to AC Milan in 2019 in a failed swap offer for Donnarumma.”

AC Milan will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Areola to join the club.
Alphonse Areola ideal fit for AC Milan?
If Alphonse Areola is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Milan.
The 28-year-old would be a very good addition for Milan and they can afford him as well.
Areola has all the skillset required to be a success story at Milan. Therefore, it makes sense for Stefano Pioli to step up his attempts to bring the France goalkeeper to Serie A side.
It will be interesting to see whether Milan will make their move during the summer transfer window.
