Milan in Pole Position to Purchase Verona Prospect

Milan are leading the race for Filippo Terracciano, whom Verona decided to put on the market alongside a few other of their talents. The Scaligeri have already finalized the departure of Isak Hien, who joined Atalanta for a €9M fee plus add-ons. They will cash in on more players after a change of ownership fell through.

Per Alfredo PedullΓ , the agent of the defender visited the Rossoneri’s HQ on Tuesday afternoon. His price tag is around €5M, maybe plus some add-ons.

Terracciano has a few other suitors, but he favors Milan among his options. Fiorentina are also in the running and might try to sway him in the next couple of days. CEO Giorgio Furlani and co. want to seal the deal quickly to maintain their advantage.

The 20-year-old has played in every Serie A game so far this season, starring as a fullback, a wingback, a box-to-box midfielder, and even as a center-back in a three-man defense a couple of times.

According to TeleNuovo, Juventus and Lazio inquired as well, but they aren’t favorites to land him.

Our Take on Milan and Terracciano

Clubs should surely take advantage of Verona’s fire sale, and he’s basically a younger version of Alessandro Florenzi. It might not be enough to satiate their hunger for new defenders, but he’d be a useful addition, and the price tag is fine given his age, versatility, and ceiling.
