Ceccarini: Milan insisting on Keita but deal will be difficult

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan continue to probe Lazio over a possible transfer for their star winger Keita Balde, but it may be difficult according to reports.

Mercato expert Niccolò Ceccarini spoke to the TMW Radio microphones regarding Milan’s interest in the Senegal international, admitting a deal will not be easy.

“Keita has now become one of the best strikers in our league. Milan is looking for him insistently and his contract will expire in 2018, but to deal with Lazio is never easy,” Ceccarini said.

“I know that the Biancocelesti will make another attempt for his renewal, although it will be hard to convince him. Fassone and Mirabelli will be good to turn down the claims of Lotito and deliver to Montella a player of great quality.”

Recent reports suggest that the Rossoneri are locked in a transfer battle with Juventus for the 22-year-old, with certain outlets suggesting Balde prefers a move to San Siro.
