Newcastle United's Davide Santon has reportedly attracted interest from AC Milan.

AC Milan are allegedly pondering a bid for Newcastle United defender Davide Santon.

The Rossoneri have earmarked the Italian as a potential replacement for Ignazio Abate - who has been linked with Arsenal - according to The Express.

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in signing Abate, but the Gunners are believed to be the frontrunners for his signature.

Santon, who has played 10 times for the Magpies this season, began his career in Serie A with Inter Milan.
