Milan Preparing Concrete Offer for Ligue 1 Defender

Serie A runners-up have reportedly drawn up a formal proposal for Lille right-back Tiago Santos on a personal request from Paulo Fonseca. According to Calciomercato, the Italians are ready to table a €10 million plus add-ons offer for the 21-year-old.

Geoffrey Moncada and Giorgio Furlani have pieced together a bid. They will include a percentage of a future sale to sweeten a deal. Lille’s stance remains uncertain, but Milan are optimistic about closing the operation shortly after Fonseca’s appointment.

In addition to scouring the market for Olivier Giroud’s successor, Milan are keen to reinforce the right flank. Davide Calabria might be the captain, yet his attacking shortcomings fall short of the club’s high standard. As a result, they’ve compiled a list of potential signings.

Tottenham Hotspur ace Emerson Royal is on the shortlist. However, the Brazilian’s price tag could be prohibitive for Milan, even though he’s no longer a regular starter in North London. The Rossoneri have sounded out Spurs over the ex-Barcelona right-back’s availability.

But Tottenham’s €25m asking price has blown them out of the water. On top of that, Fonseca seeks a reunion with Santos. He signed him from Estoril for only €6.5m and quickly turned him into one of the most exciting prospects in Ligue 1.

Santos made 43 appearances in his maiden season at Lille, scoring three goals and adding two assists. Those are not insane figures but illustrate his style of play. Milan would use a right-back of his attacking capacity after their attacks became one-dimensional due to Calabria’s limitations.
