Chelsea winger Danilo Pantic has emerged as a surprise target for AC Milan ahead of the winter transfer window.
The Serbia international has joined Chelsea from Partizan on a free transfer in July 2015. The 20-year-old has a valid contract with Chelsea until June 2018. In July 2017, Danilo Pantic was sent to Partizan on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old is considered to be one of the best young wingers in Serbia.
The Serbia international has been in impressive form for Partizan this season.
Vincenzo Montella wants to sign a new winger this winter and Danilo Pantic is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that AC Milan manager has extensively scouted Pantic and is considering a move for the winger.

According to the report in Italian Media, AC Milan director Massimiliano Mirabelli is watching progress of Pantic carefully ahead of a January offer. The Serbia international plays primarily on the left wing, but can also do a job on the right or behind the strikers. Partizan have an option to buy at the end of the season, but if right offer comes from the Italian giants, Pantic could end at San Siro.
How strong that interest is and whether AC Milan will make a winter move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
