TMW: Milan set to beat Man City and Leipzig in race for PSG defender as talks accelerate

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are closing in on the signing of Paris Saint-Germain starlet Tanguy Kouassi on a free transfer, according to a report.

Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport confirmed the Rossoneri’s interest in the 17-year-old Frenchman, whose contract expires in the summer with no signs that he is set to renew.

However, they added that Milan are not along in their pursuit of Kouassi, as the paper added that RB Leipzig and Manchester City appear to be ahead of the competition at the moment.

The latest from TMW claims that Milan and Kouassi are ‘moving forward’ in talks, and that the defender has been in the sights of Rossoneri scouts for some time.

RB Leipzig are mentioned as also having an interest, but the report once again reiterates that the idea of working with Ralf Rangnick at Milan seems to be becoming an increasingly likely possibility, with the situation described as a ‘work in progress’ for the Diavolo.
