Report: Milan in for Junior Messias

Milan are reportedly stepping up the chase for Crotone forward Junior Messias, after it became clear Romain Faivre is staying at Brest.

The French side are not willing to sell Faivre, after Milan offered €10m for his services, and SportItalia reports the Rossoneri are now moving their attention elsewhere.

With rumours regarding complicated operations for Atalanta forward Aleksey Miranchuk and Napoli winger Adam Ounas, the Diavolo is focusing on Junior Messias.

Sassuolo look at Junior Messias to replace Boga?

The 30-year-old seems set to leave Crotone this summer and Sassuolo are reportedly entering the chase, in case Jeremie Boga leaves the Mapei Stadium.

The broadcaster claims Milan have made a move to get there first, as they are still looking to bolster their attack ahead of a busy season.

Junior Messias played 36 times in Serie A last term, scoring nine goals and contributing four assists, but was not able to help Crotone to safety in the top division.

However, with many admirers in the top flight, the Brazilian could return immediately.
