Milan are currently in the middle of a very tight Scudetto race, one point clear at the top, but plans are also being made for next season. Sven Botman could be one of the first signings this summer, a report claims.
The Rossoneri have their eyes on a few positions that need strengthening for next season and one of them is the centre-back role. They are currently on five consecutive clean sheets, but Alessio Romagnoli’s potential exit will force them to act nevertheless.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Milan are closing in on completing a move for Botman, who has been linked with the club for many months. Talks are at an advanced stage and he could be the first signing for next season, per the report.
Botman is ‘ready to accept’ the offer of Milan, who are working hard to reach a final agreement with Lille on the transfer fee. Indeed, the Dutch international would be quite the statement signing for Milan ahead of next season.
