Schira: Milan, Arsenal and Sevilla all interested in 21-year-old Anderlecht midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face some tough competition if they are to sign Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht, according to a report. linked Milan with a move for him in April, noting that he is a great friend of Alexis Saelemaekers. They added how Lokongo has been scouted by the Rossoneri during his growth with the Belgian club, having made 33 Belgian First Division A appearances in the 2020-21 season, scoring three goals.

Nicolo Schira reported in April that Milan will not use their €9m option to buy Soualiho Meitè from Torino on a permanent deal in the summer and are therefore on the lookout for his replacement, adding that Sambi Lokonga is indeed a target.

Now, the same source has tweeted an update stating that as well as Milan even Arsenal and Sevilla have shown interest for the Belgian sensation, who Alexis Saelemaekers revealed he has encouraged to join him at AC Milan.

  1. Get this kid ASAP. He is a future star. Watched him play many times. For only 13-15M it’s a no brainer. Him and a Tonali can backup Kessie and Benacer. Both are young but We can always add a veteran mid at a cheap cost in case. Add Ikone (RW – 25M) Adil (5-7M) and Kamara or Milenkovic (CB) and we are solid. Wish we signed a big name striker but doesn’t look likely this year. Giroud would be fine I guess. But must find a younger striker to groom to eventually take over for Ibra. Then add vet backup a to LB. Sell Romagnoli Sammu Conti Caldara Laxalt Duarte Krunic and loan out Leao or Hauge so either can play consistently and fulfill their promise. I doubt we get De Paul – prob Hakan stays. We cannot sign De Paul and sign a proven RW like Ikone or Ziyech… it’s probably one or the other.
