Ederson’s agent has invited Milan to step up their interest in the Lyon player.
The midfielder impressed observers with a series of impressive performances since moving to Stade Gerland from Nice in the summer of 2008.
Lazio are thought to be interested in Ederson but the 24-year-old’s representative Antonio Caliendo believes Milan are favourites to capture the Brazilian.
Caliendo believes that Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani and director Ariedo Braida could be ready to make a bid.
“Adriano Galliani and Ariedo Braida have followed him for about two years,” Caliendo told tuttomercatoweb.com.
“I think that, if ever a player had to pick, AC Milan would certainly be in pole position.”
