- Marco Silva’s side are looking to make their first deal of the transfer window
- Romagnoli led Milan to a league title last season but fell out of favour in defence
- According to reports, the defender would prefer to stay in Italy next season
Fulham have made an offer for AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli as they look to secure their first signing of the window, according to Sky Italy.
The Cottagers are yet to make their first moves in the transfer market since their promotion to the Premier League, but are hoping the Italian centre-back can be their first recruit.
It’s understood that the AC Milan captain would prefer to remain in Serie A but Fulham’s offer may be too good financially for the league champions to turn down.

Romagnoli emerged as a top transfer target for Marco Silva’s side after making 19 appearances in AC Milan’s title winning season last year.
Despite having the armband at the San Siro, 27-year-old slipped in the pecking order under Stefano Pioli – with Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu being regularly chosen as the starting defensive pair.
This has opened the door to a potential transfer this summer, but it’s understood that the player would prefer to remain in Italy amid interest from league rivals Lazio.
The defender’s ideal situation would be to remain in Milan having spent seven seasons at the club, but that may not be possible given their pursuit of Lille’s Sven Botman.

Meanwhile, the Cottagers are preparing a £10million bid for Liverpool defender Neco Williams as they look to fend off Nottingham Forest and Southampton.
The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Craven Cottage and helped Marco Silva’s men gain promotion back to the Premier League in his 15 loan appearances.
Forest, Southampton and PSV Eindhoven have also shown interest in the Wales international, with the newly-promoted Premier League sign looking to replace Djed Spence, the Middlesbrough full-back who is a target for Tottenham.
