AC Milan could offer up a player-plus-cash deal to secure the signing of midfield target Lazar Samardzic from Udinese, a report claims.

TuttoUdinese (part of the TMW network) report that director Paolo Maldini is at work trying to strengthen the squad available to Stefano Pioli ahead of next season and qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Champions League has brought in some extra revenue to work with.

The target they have in mind is Udinese’s Samardzic who has racked up four goals and two assists in the role of playmaker so far this season, but he has also been used as a box-to-box midfielder too.

Juventus, Inter, Roma and several German teams have kept him in their sights but Milan plan to beat the competition by offering cash plus a player in the deal to reach the €15m asking price, with Daniel Maldini seen as an appealing profile by the Friulians.
