AC Milan have apparently agreed personal terms with Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa and are pushing to try complete a deal.
The Rossoneri were linked with a move for the 22-year-old forward a few weeks ago but things seemed to go quiet as the management appeared to focus on the midfield trio Tiemoue Bakayoko, Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz.
However, ViolaNews then reported on Monday night that Milan and Juventus are the two clubs hoping to land Chiesa, while Tuesday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanLive) confirmed Milan have held talks with agent Fali Ramadani over a deal.
According to Louis Girardi of Pianeta Milan on Twitter, Milan and Chiesa have even reached an agreement on his potential contract. Ramadani, the player’s father Enrico Chiesa and a ‘Mr.X’ are at work for a possible closure of the deal with Fiorentina.
The help from this ‘Mr.X’ – currently not named – could be crucial to the successful negotiation. Chiesa has also given his approval to Maldini regarding the move.
