AC Milan to bid for Argentine star

An attacking winger, fast and able to play on both flanks. These are the basic characteristics of AC Milan’s next signing.

The Rossoneri, with some free signings, have already reinforced certain departments of the squad but it seems that for the attack an expensive purchase will be needed. Someone to bring quality and unpredictability to the offensive phase of the Rossoneri. The Dutchman Memphis Depay, or Bernand of Shakhtar are valid alternatives but the mostly likely option is another. Tuttosport reports that AC Milan have entered the race for one of South America’s hottest names to improve the group of coach Gattuso.

We are talking about Cristian Pavon, 22 year old Argentine winger of Boca Juniors. AC Milan scouts have inquired about his availability and the player is ready to make his breakthrough in one of Europe’s top leagues. The Xeneizes value Pavon at 25 million euros, a figure rather high but not excessive for a ductile talent like him. Inter and Juventus are also following the Argentine 22 year old.

However, Milan have an advantage over other teams, the use of Gustavo Gomez in this operation could facilitate the negotiations. The Paraguayan defender is of interest to Boca who tried to sign him last January and can be offered in exchange to lower the cost of Pavon. So far this season Cristian Pavon has scored 5 goals and assisted 9 times in 20 appearances with Boca Juniors.
