AC Milan will soon welcome their ninth signing of a hectic summer transfer window but their business will not be done there, we have learned.
According to what is being reported by our colleague Luca Maninetti of SempreMilan.it, Marco Pellegrino’s medical is scheduled for Tuesday meaning that he will arrive in Italy soon.
As mentioned, he will be Milan’s ninth summer recruit after Marco Sportiello, Luka Romero, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, Tijjani Reijnders, Noah Okafor, Samuel Chukwueze and Yunus Musah.
Pellegrino is a 21-year-old Club Atletico Platense defender with an Italian passport who has played 17 times for his club this season and is among the most highly rated talents in his position in Argentina.
However, Maninetti reports that Milan are not done yet in terms of their summer business and now the attention will shift to signing a centre-forward.
Could the striker be Romelu Lukaku? A report earlier this afternoon claimed that negotiations are underway.
