AC Milan are set to complete the signing of Alexis Saelemaekers from Anderlecht on transfer deadline day, according to reports.
After Suso’s departure to Sevilla earlier on Thursday was officially confirmed, MilanNews.it reported that the Rossoneri are very close to completing the signing of Saelemaekers as his replacement.
The 20-year-old right midfielder currently plays for Anderlecht and his contract expires in 2022, and now La Gazzetta dello Sport have provided more details on the deal.
They claim (via MilanNews.it), that Milan have closed the deal on the bases of a €3.5m loan with obligation to buy set at €3.5m, so therefore a total of 7 million to which bonuses will be added (€8m the potential total figure).
Saelemaekers could fly to Milano tonight in order to be present for his medical tests on Friday morning.
