AC Milan have identified Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis as their main priority for the upcoming transfer window, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com reported last week that Florentino Luis has been highlighted as the ‘perfect’ target to help thrust the Rossoneri into a new era, and Milan have been scouting the 20-year-old for over a year.
They are planning to make a decisive move for the Portugal U21 international in the summer as he is suitable for the rapid and vertical play of the German manager, and with the farewell of Biglia a new light will be needed in the middle of the field.
He has a €120million release clause but – given the effects of COVID-19 on football finances – Benfica’s request is now €45m euros.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Florentino Luis is Milan’s ‘top priority’ to reinforce the midfield.
The outlet adds that a deal for the Benfica talent is ‘getting closer’, implying there has been a breakthrough in the negotiations that have been taking place in recent weeks.
