AC Milan are edging closer to their first signing of the January transfer window, and it’s not a centre-back. Instead, the Rossoneri have decided on the replacement for Pietro Pellegri.
Pellegri joined the Rossoneri on an initial loan deal last summer and talks were underway in the last few days to fast-track the permanent signing. However, an agreement wasn’t reached with Monaco and the striker will return to France before joining Torino on loan.
As a result, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are looking to bring in a young striker this month and it seems they have found their man. According to Calciomercato.com, they are ready to close a deal for 18-year-old Red Star man Marko Lazetic.
The deal should cost €4-5m and it’s worth mentioning that Torino had their eyes set on the youngster, prior to securing Pellegri. The signing of the latter has thus allowed Milan to move freely for Lazetic.
