Genoa defender Andreas Granqvist has admitted he is thrilled to be linked with a move to Serie A giants AC Milan.

The Sweden international has been closely watched by the Italian club and head coach Massimiliano Allegri is understood to be keen on strengthening his backline this summer.

Former Wigan Athletic player Granqvist joined Genoa last summer and made an immediate impact at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Both Inter Milan and AS Roma are also reportedly eyeing a swoop for the 27-year-old and Granqvist revealed he will make a decision regarding his future after the European Championship.

"It's flattering to be linked with a big club," he told Expressen.

"I will consider it after Euro 2012. I am enjoying myself at Genoa, but there are some clubs who are interested in me."
