GdS: Milan seriously trying to land Germany international but face battle with Lazio

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are trying to break through in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund for playmaker Julian Brandt, according to a report.

During a recent YouTube video, Carlo Pellegatti reported that Milan are not just looking for a No.10 with purely attacking characteristics like Vlasic, but also a player who knows how to function as a central midfielder of sorts, helping keep the shape of the team and working hard out of possession. This is where Julian Brandt’s name has emerged, as Pellegatti repeated twice “Attention to Julian Brandt”.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the 25-year-old is Milan’s new transfer target and the Rossoneri management are trying seriously to land him, but it will not be easy to convince Borussia Dortmund to sell.

Lazio are also keen on Brandt and at the moment they are ahead of the Diavolo, while Milan are trying to overtake the Biancocelesti in the negotiations to win the player.
