Di Marzio: PAOK defender Milan’s No.1 target – work underway to lower €10m price

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to close the signing of a centre-back before the window closes and they have a No.1 target on their list who plays in Greece, a report claims.

Gianluca Di Marzio confirms that want to strengthen the defensive department and the first choice target is Konstantinos Koulierakis of PAOK Thessaloniki. The initial request for the 19-year-old is €10m plus bonuses and the parties are working to lower that.

If the management do not manage to close a deal for Koulierakis, Milan could return to Marco Pellegrino of Club Atletico Platense. However, Serie B side Sampdoria have already moved to try and sign him on loan.

After the rumours of an interest from Milan, the Blucerchiati have returned to the negotiating table for Pellegrino and have made an offer to buy him outright for €3.5m plus a 20% future resale clause.

At the moment there is no agreement on the terms of payment, so the door remains open.

  1. I hope Moncada and Furlani sign Konstantinos Koulierakis. He’s just like Botman profile. Left footed, tall and strong in 1on 1. We need him and Thiaw in our defense.

    I hope we also get Lukaku. If we do we will definitely win the scudetto and go far in the UCL.

      1. He’s also garbage. There’s no point in keeping homegrown players if they suck. I don’t even know how unathletic players like Colombo and Gabbia made it to the Primavera.

  2. This kid from Greece looks like he has huge potential.
    Strong, fast, good at reading the game, decisive in tackling, has great vision and long-range passes.
    If he can adapt to Serie A, he will fill an important role the team is currently lacking.
    Imo, just pay PAOK a fair price and get this guy. There are few like him.
