EXCLUSIVE Milan join Everton, Napoli in chase for Eredivisie star!
Though Milan's midfield has added the likes of Giacomo Bonaventura, M'Baye Niang and - arguably- Andrea Bertolacci, there's always room for more, at least if our sources are to be believed.
We can exclusively reveal that Rossoneri scouts have been to watch Markus Henriksen, and are now so blown away that they've informed VP Adriano Galliani of his great box-to-box play, and his scoring instinct.
The -year-old Norwegian international (who faced Italy as recently as last autumn) is a product of Rosenborg's famed academy. He's on a hot streak this season, having bagged 11 goals and 5 assists in only 25 games.
His 17 strikes and 7 assists in all competitions make him Europe's most decisive midfielder, at least in the continent's biggest leagues. Though his contract runs till 2017, Milan can bag him at a discounted price... but they'll rival Napoli, Everton and Crystal Palace for his services.
