AC Milan have signed goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu from Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais, it has been confirmed.
Milan’s previous deputy to Gianluigi Donnarumma – Pepe Reina – completed a move to the Rossoneri’s Serie A rivals Lazio earlier in the month.
That meant that the club were in the market for a new back-up, and after links with a number of domestic options such as Marco Sportiello and Andrea Consigli, Tatarusanu emerged as the most concrete option.
The player had his mandatory medical checkups at the La Madonnina clinic on Friday morning. The goalkeeper then went to undergo fitness tests before the signature of his contract with the Rossoneri.
While en route to undergo his fitness tests, Tatarusanu spoke very briefly to the press. “I’m happy to be here. Forza Milan!” the Romanian goalkeeper told Calciomercato.com.
According to most reports, the Romania international will take the No.1 shirt.
