AC Milan are moving forward in their pursuit of defender Marco Pellegrino having chosen him out of three targets, it is claimed.
According to the latest from Fabrizio Romano, Milan are advancing in talks to sign Pellegrino from Club Atletico Platense. The management want to add one more centre-back before the window closes, and the 21-year-old is the favourite option.
Personal terms have already been agreed with the player through his entourage, and a new bid is expected soon to try and agree a transfer fee with Platense.
The Milan board decided to go for Pellegrino over two other options that they were considering, and are now looking to get the deal done quickly so Stefano Pioli has another player to count on.
The Rossoneri have been searching for cover in the centre of defence after letting Matteo Gabbia go to Villarreal on a season-long loan, and it seems that Pellegrino is the chosen player.
