AC Milan are eyeing a move for Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa as a potential alternative to Chelsea man, Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The Italian giants are hoping to sign Bakayoko on a permanent deal this summer after having the Chelsea man on loan. However, with the Blues holding out for a decent fee for the Frenchman, Milan are now considering alternatives.
Anguissa has, according to Calciomercato, emerged as a target for Milan after struggling to make the impression he would have wanted with Fulham. The midfielder has featured this season under Scott Parker – starting the last two – but the Cottagers have yet to see much return on their supposed £30m investment in the player.
Anguissa arrived in England from Marseille with a reputation for being a combative yet creative midfield player. The 24-year-old has 15 caps for Cameroon but has made just 24 PL appearances since his 2018 move to Fulham and spent last season with Villareal.
The report claims that Anguissa is a second option for Milan, who still view Bakayoko as their number one signing if possible.

For £30m, Fulham haven’t seen as much from Anguissa as they’d have liked. However, he has come into the team of late and was many Cottagers’ fans best player during the 4-3 loss at Leeds.
That performance might well convince Scott Parker to keep his man, although a big bid could change his mind.
Fulham will want to see Anguissa at his best but on the other hand, could need to bring some money in to help Parker build further. As things stand, it’s a tricky decision for the club to make.
