AC Milan have a clear transfer policy to focus on young talents with great potential, who can be supported by experienced players. The same philosophy will be applied even in the upcoming summer window.

Vasco Walz is among the starlets that the Rossoneri are following with great interest is. The 16-year-old midfielder is one of the most promising youngsters of Borussia Dortmund.

Walz’s contract expires in June 2021 and in a few months the player will be free to join any club he wants. Signing a talented player from Dortmund’s famous academy on a free transfer is a great opportunity for AC Milan. Barcelona are also very interested in the Germany U-17 player.

Borussia Dortmund would like to tie down Walz to a new contract but so far the parties have been unable to reach an agreement.

In addition to having good technical skills, the captain of Borussia U-17 also helps the squad in attack.

Paolo Maldini hopes to bring him to Milan, aware that Walz clearly cannot be ready for the first team right away due to his age and lack of experience. Vasco would join the Primavera squad but with a clear pathway to become a key player for Milan in the future.
