AC Milan want Ajaccio goalkeeper Ochoa, claims agent

The Mexico international has caught the attention of a number of clubs with his good performances in Ligue 1 this season, including the San Siro outfit
Guillermo Ochoa's representative Jorge Berlenga has claimed that AC Milan are interested in signing the Ajaccio goalkeeper this summer.

The Serie A outfit have long been linked with a new goalkeeper to battle it out with Christian Abbiati for the No.1 position at San Siro and are believd to have identified the Mexico international as a suitable option.

Berlenga claims the 28-year-old would rather continue to play in Ligue 1 but admits the Rossoneri are interested as he weighs up his long-term future.

"I believe that he would prefer to continue his career in France, but he has also received an offer form Milan," Ochoa's agent told Fox.

"I hope that he makes the step up to a big club. He really deserves it. I don't know where he will play next season, though.

"He does not necessarily have to go to the World Cup to show off his talents."

Ochoa's contract with Ajaccio is due to expire at the end of the season, making him a free agent come June.

The Mexican started his professional career at America before joining Ajaccio in the summer of 2011.
