Maldini Nears Empoli Move Ahead of Salernitana and Sassuolo

Daniel Maldini could continue his Serie A career on a loan spell elsewhere, after a short temporary spell at Spezia, where he racked three goals in 19 appearances. The Italy U20 international, who won the 2021/22 Scudetto with the Rossoneri, is now the subject of great interest by low-profile Italian outfits.

As per Sky Italia (SassuoloNews), Empoli have better chances than Sassuolo and Salernitana to land Maldini, with the former already holding talks to lure the attacking midfielder from Milan. Contacts have been established by the Gli Azzurri in a bid to fend off interest, and a loan deal is the most probable scenario.

Maldini was recently approached in the transfer market by the Neroverdi, but the black and green club seem to have set other goals. The future of the Milan-owned footballer is now seemingly likely to be far from Milan, at least for the moment. At the moment, it is Empoli who have excellent chances of bringing the former Spezia man to Stadio Carlo Castellani.

Maldini is a name synonymous with Milan, with his father Paolo and grandfather Cesare having achieved unprecedented success with the club in the past decades. The 21-year-old has not moved to a club other than Spezia so far.
