Ralf Rangnick has made a personal call to Paris Saint-Germain defender Tanguy Kouassi to try convince him to join Milan, it is claimed.
The Rossoneri continue to be linked with a move for Kouassi as they look to reinforce their defence ahead of next season, with the 17-year-old currently on a deal set to expire at the end of this month.
It was recently confirmed by Calciomercato.com that Milan have offered a four or five-year deal to Kouassi and the chance to sign what would be his first professional contract.
Then, Le10Sport added that Milan are in pole position to land Kouassi having made a pitch to the player and his entourage, with negotiations described as ‘advanced’.
According to the latest from transfer source Alessandro Jacobone on Twitter, Ralf Rangnick – the man likely to be Milan’s new manager – contacted the player directly to convince him of the project he wants to build at Milan.
There is, however, another attempt expected by PSG to try and get him to commit his future to the Ligue 1 giants which poses a danger to Milan’s chances.
Per #Kouassi reale interesse, tanto che ho saputo di un intervento diretto di #Rangnick per convincere il ragazzo del progetto. Ma c'è anche un rilancio del #Psg che dobbiamo considerare come pericolo.
