AC Milan have been given a boost in their pursuit of Amine Adli as Toulouse’s president has admitted he wants to leave the club.
In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about very concrete interest from Milan for the 21-year-old, who scored 8 league goals last season and was crowned Ligue 2 Player of the Year in a campaign which saw Toulouse miss out on a return to the top flight.
Like a lot of the players Milan have signed over the past few windows, Adli would arrive as more of an unknown quantity rather than a household name, but with Samu Castillejo’s future at the club so uncertain it is natural that a replacement is being sought who fits the club’s strategy.
Toulouse president Damien Comolli spoke to the club’s official channels about the future of Adli, a young forward that continues to be linked with the Rossoneri.
“I tried to renew Amine Adli’s contract, we had 12 or 13 meetings. He didn’t want to, and I’m sorry. But it should be emphasised that he behaved very well. For now I have received many calls, but no offers,” he said (via MilanNews).
