AC Milan will sign Hellas Verona midfielder
He has been linked with a number of top Serie A sides and some foreign clubs but Adriano Galliani has apparently already made contact with the Gialloblu and the signing will go ahead in the summer.
The Brazilian, 21, does hold an Italian passport and could be added to the growing number of younger players that the Rossoneri want to sign.
Eliqauim Mangala also remains a big target for them as they look to bring in a youthful central defender and the 22-year-old Porto man fits the bill.
Aside from these young players, Tuttosport have also compiled a list of others that they are hoping to bring in at the end of the season including Jordan Lukaku (brother of Romelu), Cittadella midfielder Daniele Baselli, Genoa’s Andrea Bertolacci and Pescara goalkeeper Mattia Perin.
