Italian Serie A giants AC Milan are plotting a summer move for highly-rated Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen according to the report from the stables of Corriere dello Sport.
It was revealed that the Rossoneri would hunt the transfer of the Danish defender after Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo is named as the replacement for Gennaro Gattuso at AC Milan.
The Milan legend resigned as the Rossoneri manager last week after failing to return AC Milan back to Europe’s premier club competition.
The Rossoneri failed to qualify for Champions League football for next season after a fifth-placed finish at the end of the just concluded Serie A campaign.
