The 23-year-old will be available on a free transfer after spending the entirety of his professional career at the German side, but it looks as though the next chapter of his career will see him land in Italy.
Tuttosport reports Milan are set to complete a deal for the German in the coming weeks, beating out the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Juventus, with medicals expected to take place once the Rossoneri are sold to Yonghong Li on April 14.
The Italian giants are reportedly keen to get their summer transfer dealings underway after seeing their plans stall in recent months due to uncertainty regarding their ownership situation.
Milan were in the mix to land Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Monchengladbach, but after seeing him finalise a move to Borussia Dortmund, the Rossoneri don’t want to see a repeat of that with Kolasinac.
The 23-year-old has netted four goals in 117 appearances for Schalke since making his first team debut in 2012.
