Italian defender expresses desire to secure move to English top tier.
AC Milan defender Luca Antonini has spoken of his desire to move to the Premier League at the end of the season, The Express reports.
The 30-year-old is out of contract at the San Siro in June and is said to be interesting a number of Premier League clubs, something that the versatile full-back wishes to encourage.
Having made only eight appearances this season he has expressed his desire to move on to a new challenge.
He was linked with a move to Russia in January but nothing materialised and he was even under Arsene Wenger’s radar at Arsenal in 2011.
“I’d like to play abroad, especially in the Premier League,” the player told Sky Italia recently and with his contract running out he’ll be a snip for any club looking to add some wily experience to their back line.
Antonini began his career with Milan but joined Sampdoria after failing to break into the Rossoneri first team. From there he moved around the peninsula to several clubs on loan before joining Empoli in 2007. His performances there were enough to warrant a move back to Milan where he has since gone on to make 81 appearances.
In 2010 he was called up into the Italian national team for a friendly against the Ivory Coast but he failed to get off the bench.
As of yet no clubs have been linked with him, but as the summer draws nearer expect to hear his name mentioned a lot more.
