AC Milan consider second signing matter of days

AC Milan consider it just a matter of time before they complete the signing of another midfielder after Kamada.

AC Milan are not wasting any time in the preparation for the next season. Having officially secured Champions League football, the Rossoneri are very active on the transfer market to strengthen the squad. AC Milan have just completed the signing of Daichi Kamada with the Japan international set to arrive in Italy in the next days to put pen to paper on a five-year contract.

However, just days may be missing until the next signing. That’s because AC Milan are in very advanced negotiations to purchase Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea. reports that the Italian club has increased the pressing to close an agreement with the Blues in the coming days.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has already accepted a transfer to AC Milan and there is a verbal agreement on a long-term contract. The two clubs continue to negotiate on the transfer fee. Chelsea are currently asking a figure of €25 million while Paolo Maldini is pushing to close the deal at around €20 million.

Chelsea are preparing for a summer revolution and need to sell a big number of players this summer. Loftus-Cheek is on that exit list as well. That’s AC Milan are confident that reaching an agreement with the Premier League club is just a matter of time with all parties involved eager to find a quick resolution.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is considered the perfect successor of Franck Kessie. Ever since the Ivorian left to join Barcelona, Milan haven’t found a proper replacement of similar characteristics. In addition, Loftus-Cheek can give a great contribution both in defence and attack, something that is very appreciated by coach Stefano Pioli.
