AC Milan are ready to reignite their interest in CSKA Moscow star Keisuke Honda, reports Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Rossoneri look set to miss out on Carlos Tevez, which means they will have an extra spot for a non-EU player.
They are, therefore, hoping to sign their long-term target Keisuke Honda, who is nearing the end of his contract with the Russian giants.
With the player’s current contract set to expire at the end of the year, Milan will be able to sign the midfielder at a cut-price deal in the summer transfer window, provided they can win the race for the player’s signature.
Keisuke Honda has failed to show all he’s got in Russia due to a number of serious injuries, but has, nonetheless, scored 19 goals in 76 league games for the club.
He has also impressed playing for Japan at the Confederations Cup, which could see few more high-profile clubs join the race in the coming days.
