GdS: Milan still in pursuit of €30m-rated midfielder as selling club opens up to solutions

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking at potential solutions to try and negotiate a favourable deal for Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis, according to a report.

The Rossoneri’s midfield department looks set to undergo changes this summer, as the only two defensive midfielders to have a certain place in the squad next season are Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer, while Biglia has left and Rade Krunic is attracting interest from Torino. Lucas Paqueta could also leave.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday (via MilanNews), Milan have not given up on the idea of signing Florentino Luis to reinforce the midfield.

Benfica value the 20-year-old at €30million minimum, but would also be willing to accept alternative formulas to an outright sale.

The player is strongly appreciated by Milan who have been following him for some time, and the paper adds that the Rossoneri could try negotiate a one or two-year loan with either an option or obligation to buy.
