Sven Botman has been heavily linked with AC Milan over the last few months but it seems the Rossoneri could be beaten in the race for the defender. In fact, Newcastle are closing in.
The Rossoneri are looking for a centre-back to replace the exit-bound Alessio Romagnoli this summer. Being left-footed, and filled with quality, Botman has been the primary target for quite some time.
However, according to Sky Italia (via MilanNews), Newcastle have seemingly entered pole position for Botman as they are ready to offer a whopping €50-55m. Obviously, this is too much for Milan.
As a result of this, Milan are expected to focus on Torino defenser Gleison Bremer this summer. The Brazilian has a price tag of around €30m and is, as such, a more feasible solution. The report states, however, that Milan will make one last attempt for Botman.
