CorSport: Milan ‘confident’ of player-plus-cash deal for €50m Torreira

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are preparing a swap deal involving Franck Kessie to try and land Arsenal star Lucas Torreira this summer, a report claims.

Incoming Rossoneri head coach, Marco Giampaolo, coached the Uruguayan at Sampdoria and has reportedly asked about the possibility of reuniting with the player at Milan

Torreira joined the Gunners just one year ago for a fee of nearly €30m, and now il Corriere dello Sport reports that the London club are ready to demand €50m for the prized young midfielder.

However Milan have a plan, as the newspaper explains the Rossoneri no longer view Kessie as untouchable and value him at €30m, meaning he could be offered as part of a deal for Torreira.

Giampaolo sees Torreira as a ‘cornerstone’ of his project at the club, the report adds, with Milan confident a cash-plus-Kessie deal will be enough to land the 22-year-old.

  1. It’s going to be a bad idea for Milan if they add kessie to the move.. Torreira is good but can pair well with kessie since Baka is heading back to Chelsea

  2. Player plus cash deals don’t ever really seem to work because you’re not just trying to convince the club to part with a player but you’re also trying to convince a club to take a player they probably don’t want.
