Sven Botman was the No.1 target for AC Milan during the January transfer window but a transfer never materialised. As a result, the Rossoneri are currently working on bringing in the centre-back this summer.
The Dutch international’s agents were at Casa Milan earlier today (see video here) and as per Fabrizio Romano, it was a ‘positive and direct’ meeting between the parties. In short, Milan are still evidently very keen on signing him.
According to Daniele Longo, there wasn’t necessarily anything new after the meeting, but Botman is ‘enthusiastic’ and he’s pushing for the move. The meeting was positive on the whole and Milan have been working on the operation since December.
He also added that Botman already has spoken with his former Lille teammate Mike Maignan about the move. The goalkeeper seems to be very happy with the Rossoneri and one would have to imagine that he only fueled Botman’s enthusiasm.
