As we revealed here on Calciomercato.com, Milan have made tentative enquiries with Borussia Dortmund for young midfielder Julien Weigl. The 21-year-old has been causing a stir in Germany with some excellent performances in the Bundesliga and has now broken into Joachim Low’s German national side. Rossoneri Sporting Director Mirabelli has requested information on the player but news has emerged today that they will face stiff competition to try to bring him to Serie A with Spanish giants Barcelona are also keen on the youngster.
 
Having started his career in the youth ranks at SV Ostermunchen, 1860 Roseheim and 1860 Munich, he arrived at his current employer in 2015 and made his debut in a 4-0 home win over Borussia Monchengladbach. Having represented his country at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 levels, he finally broke into the full national team and was a member of their 2016 European Championship squad. Weigl has a contract at Dortmund until 2019 and has a current market value of around €45 million.
