With a slim chance of making EuroLeague playoffs this year, EA7 Emporio Armani are making plans for the next season already.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Italian league leaders are showing interest in Arturas Gudaitis whom they want to bring over to Milan for the coming season.

Gudaitis is a member of Lietuvos Rytas since 2015 after moving to Lithuanian capital from arch rivals Zalgiris. He was drafted 47th overall in the NBA Draft the same.

The 23-year-old center is on the last year of his contract with Rytas (the deal includes an option for 2017-2018 season) and could be tempted to try his luck abroad. Especially with EA7 Emporio Armani having a guaranteed spot in EuroLeague.

Gudaitis averaged 13.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in nine EuroCup games this season.
