CM: Fiorentina open talks with agent of Penarol star but meeting with Milan is imminent

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face competition to sign striker Agustin Alvarez from Penarol as Fiorentina are also in the race, according to a report. claims that the Fiorentina management met the agent of Alvarez this morning, adding that he is a profile that is very popular among the Viola management, but at the moment he is not a priority in view of the January mercato because they are working to complete a deal for Borja Mayoral with Real Madrid and Roma.

The representative of the 20-year-old – who has 23 goals in 38 appearances for Penarol across all competitions this season – is expected at Casa Milan tomorrow (Friday) to meet with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.

It is worth nothing that Edgardo Lasalvia also has Benfica striker Darwin Nunez as a client, another striker that Milan are interested in, with a long-term centre-forward option a more pressing issue given the current lack of attacking depth and the fact Ibrahimovic and Giroud have a combined age of 75.

We can infer therefore that if Milan were to prioritise Alvarez and Fiorentina consider him a target for down the line, the Rossoneri are likely to have the edge.
