CorSport: Milan ready to let three leave to fund purchase of exciting €75m midfield duo

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are set to embark on a revolution in midfield this summer with two players already picked out as top targets, a report claims.

According to Wednesday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), the departures of Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura means at least two signings are needed of both youth and quality.

The duo have already identified: Dominik Szoboszlai of Red Bull Salzburg and Sandro Tonali from Brescia.

The interest in Szoboszlai is very strong but the asking price of the Austrian club at the moment is €25million, a figure that the club considers too high.

Chief scout Geoffrey Moncada and intermediaries are therefore talking to Salzburg to try and lower the asking price, and it is possible that Lucas Paqueta could be sold to finance the move.

Lazio are also keen on the player, as are other European clubs, and he perfectly fits Elliott Management’s proposed vision as he is young and talented.

The Tonali track is more complicated as Inter are currently leading the charge, with Brescia’s demands high (a €50m asking price has been mentioned), but Antonio Conte is pushing for the purchase.
