Milan in race for Sevilla full-back Guilherme Arana

Milan are in the race to sign Sevilla full-back Guilherme Arana but face competition from clubs in Italy and France, report Marca.

Citing Brazilian media outlet UOL, French duo Lyon and Bordeaux are also said to be monitoring the progress of the Brazilian left-back, while Sampdoria and Bologna are linked too.

The 22-year-old joined the Andalusian club from Corinthians in January 2018 but has been involved in just 12 La Liga games over the course of 16 months, failing to dislodge first-choice Sergio Escudero.

Brazilian club Santos, who are currently coached by former Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli along with his former club Corinthians, have previously been said to be in the running for his signature.

ABC de Sevilla have previously claimed Los Rojiblancos may turn to Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno – who has also been linked with a move to Benfica – or youth product Javi Vazquez this summer.

Arana has never received international recognition for his country beyond Under-20 level and his future this summer appears to lie away from Spain.
