Juventus and AC Milan monitoring Fabian Monzon - report

According to reports in Italy and France, the Bianconeri and the Rossoneri, who are currently battling it out at the top of Serie A, are now also competing for the Nice full-back
Juventus and AC Milan have both reportedly sent representatives to watch Fabian Monzon line out for Argentina against Switzerland on Wednesday night, according to Tuttosport.

Bianconeri director Beppe Marotta has apparently made the trip from Geneva - where he took in Brazil's friendly with Bosnia & Herzegovina on Tuesday evening - to Bern in order to watch the Nice defender in action.

The paper also claims that Milan sporting director Ariedo Braida could also be in attendance at the Wankdorf Stadium.

The Rossoneri are said to be keen to sign a new left-back in the summer and have also been heavily linked with Udinese's Pablo Armero.

Monzon would represent a less-expensive alternative but Scudetto rivals Juve are also keen on the player, with Italy centre-half Giorgio Chiellini having had to fill in on the left-hand side of the Bianconeri defence at times this season.

The 24-year-old Monzon, who has been capped seven times by his country, joined Nice from Boca Juniors last year.
