The rossoneri have required his loan for fifty thousand euros with the right to buy for one million and two hundred thousand euros. If Empoli decide to accept AC Milan’s offer, the young player will join U21 manager Gattuso at Primavera team. It is Gattuso himself who has asked Marco Fassone to sign the Italian.
