AC Milan are moving towards keeping Alessandro Florenzi on a permanent basis and not just because of his performances, a report claims.
Florenzi joined from Roma in the summer on a loan with option to buy deal and after initially struggling for starts and then getting a knee injury that required minor surgery, he is now showing his strengths as an experienced and versatile member of a squad that need help in their push for the Scudetto.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the chances of Florenzi being bought permanently are on the rise. The full-back is very useful from a tactical point of view, but also when it comes to the composition of the squad heading into next season.
With Alessio Romagnoli and Franck Kessie both currently set to leave the club at the end of the season, Milan are in need of players who have spent time in Italian academies as per the regulations for UEFA and Serie A squad lists.
