Reports: Milan closing in on Conti’s replacement as €6-7m deal is being finalised

By Oliver Fisher -

A number of sources are now reporting that AC Milan are closing in on signing Alessandro Florenzi from Roma on loan with an option to buy.

According to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Florenzi has become Milan’s number one goal for the right-back in recent days and an agreement with Roma is close. The operation should be finalised on the basis of a loan with option to buy which will become an obligation under certain conditions and the total sum of the deal should be around €6-7m.

Today’s edition of La Repubblica (via MilanNews) also reports on the negotiation that is underway between Milan and Roma for Florenzi confirming that it is well advanced and therefore should go through in a short time. The player is leaving the Giallorossi, who are trying to sell him and other players out of their plans.

Meanwhile, il Giornale (via MilanNews) confirms that Milan are close to signing the 30-year-old under the aforementioned conditions as the full-back will take the place of Andrea Conti in the squad.

    We have Kalulu and Gabbia who are young talents and can play as RB. Why do we need another for back up? If we sign one then we will have 3 CB as back up. Roma, Kalulu and Gabbia.

      Have you seen them play RB? I don’t think they can get a good cross from 20 attempts, vital for a RB. Getting a quick run and past their players is another thing. It is like saying Kessie can play RB. He can, but it isn’t a good option. Just an emergency backup, not serious to go into CL and Seria A with only 1 real RB.

    2. Vero Rossonero says:

      Lol. Maybe Theo can play RB too, since we have Ballo-Toure?

    Gabbia is a young defender tho but not mature and doesn’t have confidence yet to be a starter in Milan we need experience players,don’t forget we will be playing UCL this season and we don’t no the group we might fall in,at least we need 4 more players to me able to compete for any cup and remain in top 4 remember other top Italian team has good coach with vision who can bring out the best in a young player not like Pioli who sell future stars or loan them out and Milan is our biggest problem in Milan why can’t they sell dunaroma and Calhanoglu last winter instead of letting them go for free now we don’t have funds to buy player I don’t see this Milan finishing top 10 believe me because we don’t have players that can create goal opportunities and no good finisher,our both strikers are over 75yrs 🤦‍♂️🤣😂 we need a good striker not too young but below 27 and a AM RW,DM ,RB,SFand a CB

    First: paying 6-7mil for a player with Florenzi features is very expensive.
    Second: I would not say he is much better than Conti.
    Third: he will be a back up for Calabria.
    Fourth: I think this is our RW transfer. If this is true, management can reinvest the money from Hauge in bringing in a replacement for Calhanoglu. Probably, they want Adli (as a backup for Diaz) and for Pobega.
    Honestly, in this scenario, we do not have players to create goal opportunities.

    We are going to be stronghold without canons. Almost perfect defense but no goal opportunities. We could see it in recent friendlies. Need a playmaker otherwise we’ll be Gattuso’s Milan again with infinity 0-0 draws.
