The January only ended a few weeks ago, but it is already time for AC Milan to start planning and plotting the summer one, with two purchases lined up.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports how Sven Botman and Renato Sanches are the number one targets for the centre-back and midfield departments respectively, with both owned by Lille and both having long been at the top of the wish list for Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.
The Rossoneri are ready to invest a significant amount of around €30m for the Dutch defender and while an agreement with the French club is yet to be found, a meeting at Casa Milan with Botman’s agents confirmed that he is pushing to move to Milan. R
Renato Sanches, on the other hand, remains the first target to replace Kessie and his farewell at the end of the season is growing in likelihood given Lille are outside the Champions League places and his deal expires in 2023.
