Milan Open Negotiation to Acquire Highly-Touted Toulouse Youngster

Milan are attempting to purchase Amine Adli to bolster their front-line. The Rossoneri offered €5M plus add-ons to Toulouse for the 21-year-old prospect and are waiting for an answer. The French club turned down a similar bid from Olympique Marseille in January, Sky Sport reports. In any case, their request should not be far superior to the first proposal.

Adli was named the best Ligue 2 player in 2021/2022, landing on Milan and other clubs’ radar. He tallied 8 goals and 8 assists in 36 appearances. Toulouse finished the regular season in third place, losing in the playoff against Nantes. The attacker, who was born in Eu on May 20th, 2000, is a home-grown product and has 18 caps with the French U-18’s national team. He can feature in multiple offensive positions and shined primarily as a second-striker in his breakout campaign.

Milan continue to work on their attack while waiting for an answer from Hakan Calhanoglu. They are poised to miss out on Rodrigo De Paul, while Rafael Leao could leave for a good offer. They have reached agreement with Olivier Giroud on a two-year contract, but they want him only on a free transfer. Roma’s Edin Dzeko represents an alternative to the Frenchman if Chelsea does not let him go. They could add more than one striker because Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s rehab from a knee injury is reportedly progressing slower than expected. They are also in talks with Real Madrid to bring Brahim Diaz back following a successful season-long loan spell.
