They met with his entourage at Casa Milan and made it clear that they want to sign the player permanently on a multi-year deal.
Now, Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com has confirmed that this morning Milan established official talks with the Ligue 2 side to try and secure the services of the 17-year-old midfielder, whose contract expires in 2022.
