SM: Milan ready decisive lunge for Szoboszlai; Rangnick wants Upamecano and Real Madrid duo

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are making ground in their pursuit of Dominik Szoboszlai while Ralf Rangnick wants to bring a defender with him from RB Leipzig.

Our mercato correspondent Vito Angele has provided an update on the plans for the upcoming window, confirming to us that the budget is expected to be around €80m after the Rossoneri reached an agreement with Rangnick, who will be satisfied with that amount. This, however, doesn’t include money from potential sales.

Dominik Szoboszlai is one of the players that have been heavily linked with Milan. The talented midfielder, who currently plays for RB Salzburg, is on Rangnick’s wish list and the German has received reassurances from the club.

The Rossoneri have already been in contact with the agent, collecting the player’s approval. In the coming days, the first official offer will be presented to the Austrian side, meaning Szoboszlai could be the second to sign after Pierre Kalulu.

Another player that Rangnick is keeping a close eye on is Dayot Upamecano. The RB Leipzig defender’s contract will expire in 2021 and should he fail to reach a renewal agreement with the German side, Milan could get him at a good price.

Martin Odegaard is also on the wish list, currently on loan at Real Sociedad but owned by Real Madrid. Rangnick has been following the midfielder for quite some time and he isn’t the only Bernabeu player on the list, as the interest in Luka Jovic remains.
