AC Milan are closing in on an agreement with VfB Stuttgart central defender Jan-Carlo Simic, according to a report.
According to what is being reported by German source Stuttgarter Nachrichten, Jan-Carlo Simic is close to leaving the U19s of VfB Stuttgart as he is about to move to Milan.
The 17-year-old centre-back attracted the attention of several clubs with strong performances at the U17 European Championship with Serbia, and it is the Rossoneri who have reached a deal.
The teenager is expected to sign his first professional contract with Milan and transfer fee should be in the six-digit range and can increase to up to €1m through bonuses.
In many ways the move is not too dissimilar to the one that saw Pierre Kalulu arrive. He signed for a development fee from Lyon having not made a senior appearance for them (Simic hasn’t for Stuttgart either) and has now grown into being one of the first names on the team sheet under Stefano Pioli.
