Last night, many were surprised to hear that Milan are evaluating the signing of Crotone star Junior Messias. Although he had a good 2020/21 season in Serie A, there are doubts regarding his quality.
The Brazilian international, who also is 30-year-old, scored nine goals and assisted an additional four for his Crotone last season. They were eventually relegated and the winger is now looking for another experience in the top flight, so it seems.
Therefore, as reported by Daniele Longo, his agent proposed him to Milan and confirmations have arrived regarding their stance: they are evaluating the player. There could, therefore, be a meeting with Crotone during the week.
#Messias è stato proposto dal suo entourage al #Milan e ci hanno confermato che è un profilo sul quale stanno facendo delle valutazioni, come esterno destro. Nulla di fatto o definitivo, ma possibile incontro con il #Crotone in settimana

However, they are not in advanced negotiations with the club yet as they are simply evaluating Messias for the right-wing. In the coming days, the situation should become more clear, also because Milan have a few other targets on their wish list.
