Real full-back wants Milan move

Alvaro Odriozola is considering joining AC Milan on a loan move, reports El Transistor.

The 25-year-old right-back was able to feature only 13 times in La Liga last season amid competition from Dani Carvajal and the versatile Nacho Fernandez.

Real Madrid are open to a temporary transfer for the player, who has a contract with the club until 2024, and would be looking to include an option to make the transfer permanent in any final agreement.

Firmino facing Liverpool axe

Roberto Firmino is reportedly the most vulnerable player in the Liverpool squad, meaning he is at risk of being sold in the next two years.

The Brazilian striker has entered the final two years of his contract at Anfield, and the Reds could decide against handing him a new deal.

With a regeneration of the attacking line in mind and the belief that renewing their entire front three isn’t realistic, Jurgen Klopp’s side could let go of the 29-year-old whom they purchased for £29 million back in 2015. [The Athletic]
