AC Milan chief Maldini: We'd have signed Lozano if...

AC Milan chief Paolo Maldini admits they were interested in Napoli midfielder Hirving Lozano.

Lozano left PSV Eindhoven for Napoli over the summer.

“We looked at him and thought about buying him," Maldini told TUDN.

“We talked to his agent [Mino Raiola], but in the end there was a problem concerning his position on the field.

“We played with a 4-3-3 last season, the perfect formation for him, but now we play in a different way.

“He was an option for us over the summer, but he made the decision to go to another big club like Napoli, and the factor of working with [Carlo] Ancelotti, who is a maestro, helps him play in his best and natural position."
