Milan Close to Signing Saint-Etienne Prodigy this Winter

Milan continue to scan the transfer market in a bid to bring in an immediate reinforcement for the goalkeeping position, keeping Mike Maignan’s current condition in mind. The ex-Lille shotstopper has long been sidelined due to a calf injury which has only worsened due to improper recovery.

As per French portal Le10Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb), the Rossoneri have eyed signing 17-year-old Noah Raveyre as early as this winter transfer window. The Saint-Etienne youth product has just one senior appearance to his name, which is why Milan are currently pondering whether to move in for him or not, given his €1M valuation by the Ligue 1 side.

Moreover, Raveyre’s contract with the French club expires soon, making it unlikely the Rossoneri management will agree upon the demanded transfer fee. However, there are reports from Footmercato indicating that a verbal agreement has already been reached between the player and Milan.

Both Ricky Massara and Paolo Maldini are currently negotiating terms of a potential deal with Saint-Etienne, and a conclusion is expected to be reached by the end of next week or perhaps even sooner.
