Sven Botman has been heavily linked with a move to AC Milan ever since the January window and although there has been little progress lately, the interest remains. Something that the defender himself revealed, sort of.
Milan are looking for a centre-back, preferably left-footed, to replace their current captain Alessio Romagnoli. The latter’s contract is expiring and he’s expected to leave the Rossoneri for his boyhood club Lazio.
In an interview with ESPN Netherlands, while on international duty, Botman spoke about the transfer rumours. When the reporter asked if AC Milan is the club, then the defender broke out into a huge smile.
“The market? Of course, it’s difficult to separate things. It’s just an important moment for me, so I hear about this almost every day. Things are progressing and I hope there will be more clarity before the start of the pre-season. Milan? [smiles].”
