AC Milan announce third summer signing

AC Milan have completed the signing Swedish attacking midfielder Lukas Bjorklund who plays for Malmo.

AC Milan are planning for the future and this strategy of the club is not a secret but rather a precise transfer policy. Today, after Pierre Kalulu and Alexis Saelemaeker, AC Milan have completed their third summer signing: Lukas Bjorklund. The Swedish talent arrived today in Italy to undergo medical tests before signing a long term agreement with the Rossoneri.

Lukas Bjorklund is a 16-year-old attacking who played for Malmo, the team in which Zlatan Ibrahimovic grew up. The Swedish talent is 1.85 m tall but he is particularly striking for his technical skills and game vision.

Bjorklund is very good at moving between lines and serving assists to his teammates. In addition, he is dangerous with shots from outside the box. AC Milan have been following him for a while and decided to move in advance for the Malmo starlet beating the competition of other Italian clubs Inter, Bologna and Udinese.

The number 10 and captain of Sweden Under-17 has made 7 appearances with his national team. The Rossoneri management fell in love with Bjorklund during a friendly match with Malmo and are confident he has great potential to become a good player.

Sky Sport reported the first images of Bjorklund arriving in Milan to undergo medical tests accompanied by his agent Ariatti. The elegant attacking midfielder will likely join the Primavera side. His football idols are Tottenham star Dele Alli and former AC Milan legend Kaka.
