AC Milan could reportedly make an offer to sign Leo Thethani while Grasshopper are chasing Dean Solomons.

Both 21-year-olds play for Ajax AFC's Jong Ajax that play in the second tier of Dutch football.

This news comes on the back of the cancellation of the Eredivisie and continued suspension of football as the coronavirus continues to wreck havoc across Europe.

Thethani and Solomons both have contracts with Ajax until the end of the 2019/20 season.

The players' agent Jerome McCarthy told KickOff that the Serie A giants have been monitoring Thethani while a move to the Swiss Super League could be on the cards for Solomons.

He said: "Currently with Leo, Milan is interested in him and with Dean, Grasshoppers are keen.

"But those moves are both on the back-burners now because of the coronavirus, they can't even leave the country."

McCarthy added that there is a chance Thethani could remain in the Netherlands.

"With Dean, they're not renewing his contract at Ajax and with Leo, there is a possibility still.

"Both the two club as are very interested in Dean and Leo but they are just waiting on the whole outcome of the pandemic."
