AC Milan are looking to accelerate a deal to land Toulouse midfielder Kouadio Kone, a report claims, with bonuses the key.

There are four factors that led to this decision: the need for a reinforcement, belief in the player, the fear of fierce competition and the difficulties of Rade Krunic.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via, the Rossoneri are indeed ready to step up their pursuit of the 19-year-old because he matches the identikit that Maldini wants from a midfielder.
