AC Milan’s scouting team were left impressed by the performance of Chievo midfielder Emanuel Vignato this weekend, reports claim.
The Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management have so far deployed a recruitment strategy focused on signing young players with high potential and recording capital gains on the balance sheet.
One of the players they have been linked with over the last few months is Vignato, with Calciomercato.com recently claiming that Milan’s chief scout Geoffrey Moncada is continuing to monitor his progress.
An update from the same outlet claims that Milan watched the 19-year-old for Chievo against Pordenone and Livorno, and were also at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi for their game against Ascoli on Sunday.
The Italian-Brazilian shone and scored his first goal of the season as Chievo won 2-0, and according to the report he is valued at €8million with Lazio, Sampdoria and Bayern Munich also interested.
La Gazzetta dello Sport‘s Nicolo Schira also reports that Milan were left impressed by Vignato, with Inter also having a scout present.
