AC Milan are expected to make at least three signings before the summer transfer window ends and De Ketelaere is just the start.
The summer transfer window is entering a crucial phase for the Rossoneri. So far AC Milan have signed Junior Messias and Alessandro Florenzi on permanent transfer while Divock Origi joined as a free agent from Liverpool. In the next days AC Milan will speed up talks for a couple of targets.
MilanNews.it reports that the Rossoneri will make at least three more signings until the end of the summer window. The first will be Charles De Ketelaere. AC Milan have decided to spend around €35 million for the Belgian attacking midfielder. The Rossoneri management will be in Belgium tomorrow to close the last details of the agreement.
Immediately after De Ketelaere, Maldini and Massara will turn their attention to the defence. AC Milan are in advanced talks to sign Japhet Tanganga on loan from Tottenham. Antonio Conte has already given the green light to this transfer and Tottenham sporting director Paratici will be in Milano this week to close the agreement.
The third signing will be the central midfielder. AC Milan have not given up on Renato Sanches yet. Despite the many rumors about PSG, Lille have not received other offers besides the one from Milan. The Rossoneri will wait for a bit longer to decided whether shift focus on another target.
AC Milan’s big mercato dilemma is the right winger position. The Italian champions currently have Messias and Saelemaekers in their ranks. If one doesn’t leave no one will arrive. Milan have put Saelemaekers on the market for a fee of €20 million but have not received any bids so far for the Belgian right winger.
