AC Milan join the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain youngster Tanguy Kouassi, according to a report.

AC Milan have reportedly joined the race for Tanguy Kouassi as the speculation surrounding the Paris Saint-Germain youngster's future continues to gather pace.

The 17-year-old has scored three times in 13 appearances for PSG during the 2019-20 campaign but will see his current deal in the French capital expire at the end of June.

Both Liverpool and Barcelona are thought to be interested in signing the France Under-18 international, while RB Leipzig are also believed to be admirers.

However, according to Calciomercato, Milan are now firmly in the hunt for the centre-back, who played a leading role in France's Under-17 side finishing third at the 2019 World Cup.

A previous report claimed that Liverpool were exploring the possibility of signing Kouassi as a replacement for Dejan Lovren, while Barca are also thought to be in the market for a new central defender this summer due to the uncertainty surrounding Samuel Umtiti's future.

Milan are currently seventh in Serie A with the 2019-20 campaign at a standstill.
