AC Milan are weighing up a swoop for Atletico Madrid's Colombian defender Santiago Arias, according to a report.

AC Milan are reportedly weighing up a swoop for Atletico Madrid defender Santiago Arias.

The 27-year-old arrived at Atletico from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2018 off the back of an impressive World Cup for Colombia.

Arias made 33 appearances during his first season in Madrid, contributing one goal and two assists for Diego Simeone's side in all competitions.

The defender has only made three appearances for Atletico this term, though, with Kieran Trippier becoming the Spanish outfit's first-choice right-back since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur over the summer.

According to Tuttosport, Milan are keen to bring a new full-back to San Siro next year and have identified Arias as a potential signing due to the South American's precarious situation.

The former Sporting Lisbon youngster has played the full 90 minutes in two of Atletico's last five La Liga matches but was back on the bench against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.
