Schira: Milan eyeing 21-year-old Anderlecht star after making decision on Meite’s future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a replacement in mind already for Soualiho Meite who looks set to return to Torino at the end of the season, a journalist has claimed.

Meite joined Milan on a loan with option to buy deal from Torino during the January transfer window and while he has made 10 league appearances for the Rossoneri, there are still doubts about whether the management will trigger the buy-out and make him a permanent signing.

According to the latest from Nicolo Schira on Twitter, Milan will not use their option to buy the Frenchman from Torino in summer, which is set at €9m, and they already have their mind on a potential replacement.

The journalist adds that Milan are interested in Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga, a very highly rated talent who has 24 league appearances this season and two goals. The 21-year-old has already been linked with Milan in recent months by sources like Calciomercato.com and even DH in Belgium.
