AC Milan join Liverpool and Everton in race to sign Costa Rican star

AC Milan

Keylor Navas looks set to leave Levante at the end of the season, with list of potential suitors growing rapidly. AC Milan are the latest club targeting the Costa Rican goalkeeper.

Keylor Navas has had an incredible season between the sticks up to this point, and it looks set to only get better with the World Cup edging ever closer.

The Levante keeper has been sensational in Liga BBVA, making more saves than any other goalkeeper in the division.

The 27-year-old has a better saves-per-goal ratio than the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Victor Valdes and Diego Lopez, and has had four clean sheets from his last five matches.

And with 12 clean sheets all season, it's easy to see why the Costa Rican shot stopper is in such high demand.

Navas has expressed his desire to stay with Levante but it is unlikely that the Spanish club will be able to afford to offer him a new contract, with just over a year left on his current one.

Levante will look to cash in on the £8m-rated No.1 after the World Cup in Brazil this summer, with Everton and Liverpool reported to be keeping tabs.

And it has now emerged that AC Milan have joined the race to sign Navas, in order to replace the aging Christian Abbiati at the San Siro.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Milan are looking at Navas as an ideal replacement in the summer, with the likes of Villarreal, Sevilla and Atletico also interested.

Keylor Navas is a name to watch out for at the World Cup, as he will have to be at his best to give Costa Rica any chance of progressing through the group stages.

Costa Rica are in Group D, alongside England, Italy and Uruguay and so Navas will undoubtedly get the chance to showcase his talents against some of the best teams in the tournament.

Though he won’t be fazed by the task at hand, as he conceded just seven goals in qualifying for the World Cup, fewer than any other goalkeeper heading to Brazil in June.
