The Italian club is now focusing on reshaping the roster for the next campaign.

According to Vincenzo Di Schiavi of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Brandon Davies' future is linked either with FC Barcelona or Armani Exchange, as the Italians are highly interested in adding the center. BasketNews sources confirm the latter information.

Though, Davies' priority remains the contract extension with the Catalans. In 2020, he signed a new two-year contract with Barca.

The 30-year-old Ugandan athlete is averaging 9.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 10.3 PIR over 33 EuroLeague games this season.

Via La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ettore Messina's squad is also targeting Stefano Tonut of Umana Reyer Venice to bolster the department of the Italian players. BasketNews sources affirm the interest for Tonut.

The sportsman will be able to leave Venice in the summer by taking advantage of the €200,000 EuroLeague exit. Tonut's deal will expire in 2023.

As Vincenzo Di Schiavi reports, Milan was ready to pay even more for him last summer.

The 28-year-old shooting guard registered 9.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 10.2 PIR in 17 EuroCup duels this year.

Tonut was an important piece for the Italian national team in Tokyo Olympics. Over 4 contests (26.6 minutes), he averaged 10.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 9.8 PIR. Italy was eliminated in the quarterfinals stage by France.

As previously reported, Armani Exchange and Kevin Pangos already have an agreement in principle for the upcoming season.

Moreover, Milan is looking with interest at the situation of German big man Johannes Voigtmann.
