AC Milan have moved a step closer to signing Aster Vranckx from Wolfsburg on an initial loan deal with a view to a permanent move, a report claims.
As has been reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, Vranckx is one of the names that has been evaluated by the Rossoneri management in recent weeks to add more depth to the midfield which looks one player short.
There has been contact between the two clubs in recent hours and they are now very close to agreeing on a fee.
The formula is expected to be an onerous loan with an option to make the deal permanent. Wolfsburg would like to receive €13 million for the player next summer but Milan are currently looking at a fee of €11.5m.
The 19-year-old Belgian’s arrival is not believed to be linked to any possible exit for Tiemoue Bakayoko which means that deal should not hold up the arrival of Vranckx.
