Once the deal with Werder Bremen is completed, Milan will turn to their target as a replacement, namely FC Basel left-back Calafiori.

The 21-year-old was sold to FC Basel by Roma only a year ago for €1m, with the Giallorossi also retaining 40 percent of the sell-on fee.

An Italy Under-21 international, Calafiori has also been linked with Cagliari this summer. The young defender is the primary choice to replace Theo Hernandez, as there is a belief that he has developed since he left Italy.

He made 38 appearances for Basel last season, contributing one goal and three assists for the Swiss club.
