A Bola: Wish list shortened as long-time Milan target closes in on loan move to Monaco

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the targets from AC Milan’s midfield wish list looks set to be etched off as Florentino Luis is closing in on a move to Monaco.

The Rossoneri may already boast the trio of Ismael Bennacer, Franck Kessie and Sandro Tonali in their defensive midfield department, but most major outlets believe they are in the market for a fourth name to give head coach Stefano Pioli the two quality pairings he has asked for.

Tiemoue Bakayoko of Chelsea, Boubakary Soumare of Lille and most recently Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa have been linked, but Benfica’s Florentino Luis is a name that has not gone away since January.

However, it seems like it might be about to go away for a year at least. That is because Portuguese outlet A Bola (via MilanNews) are reporting that Niko Kovac’s Monaco are closing in on signing the 21-year-old on a paid dry loan for €2m.
