The profile of Aster Vranckx has ended up on AC Milan’s list of transfer targets for the midfield, according to a report.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Vranckx is the latest name that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have set their sights on. Last year he played 24 games in the Bundesliga, scoring twice. Before that he was a young star at Mechelen in Belgium where he amassed 47 appearances, 5 goals and 4 assists from 2019 to 2021.
With a Belgian mother and a father who fled the Democratic Republic of Congo, Vranckx has chosen to represent Belgium and has played three times for their U21 side, drawing comparisons with Axel Witsel for his playing style.
The report adds that he could arrive on loan with an option to buy but at the moment it is just an idea more so that an advanced negotiation. Another curiosity: in 2020 he was the second best Belgian talent in the league, finishing runner up to Charles De Ketelaere.
