AC Milan are in talks with Bordeaux for Yacine Adli and are hoping to close a deal in the coming days, according to a report.
As this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports, the confirmation came in the past few hours from the Bordeaux president Gerard Lopez, who told RMC Sport: “There are open discussions. It is not wrong to say that Milan is interested and that they are in a good position. We are talking and we will see if this transfer will take place or not in the next few days.”
Adli is admired by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara not only for his quality and potential, but also because he is a very flexible player since he can play both as a central midfielder and as an attacking midfielder. Milan are pushing hard, but the Ligue 1 club want €10m for the 21-year-old.
For this reason, Milan are in fact aiming to sell Samu Castillejo before launching a concrete offer for Adli, and the winger ended up in the crosshairs of the Getafe. Castillejo already has an agreement in principle with the Madrid club, who are expected to make an offer with the Rossoneri wanting €8m.
