TMW: Brighton representative in Milan for Lapadula

By Oliver Fisher -

Since the arrival of Andre Silva from Porto, the futures of both Carlos Bacca and Gianluca Lapadula have become certain.

The former was in red-hot form to begin the season, but by the end of the campaign Lapadula was the man holding the starting spot in Vincenzo Montella’s 4-3-3 system.

As learned exclusively by Tuttomercatoweb, the former Pescara man was recently the subject of a survey by Charlton Athletic.

The League One club tested the water with the Peruvian striker, but the Rossoneri‘s asking price of €20million cooled their interest.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Vincenzo Morabito is in Milano acting as a representative for newly-promoted Premier League club.

Milan’s asking price remains €20million, a figure which has already forced Crystal Palace to withdraw their interest.

Lapadula spoke about his future last month amid rumours of a possible San Siro exit.

“My future? I am fine at Milan, I strongly wanted to join the club, now we will see,” he said after Italy’s 8-0 win over San Marino.

Reports last week suggested Milan are considering sending him to Genoa, with Giovanni Simeone moving to San Siro as a part of the deal.
