Milan Reach Agreement for Serie B Forward

After blowing the deal with Brest for star midfielder Romain Faivre, Milan have turned their sights on finalizing a deal for Crotone forward Junior Messias.

The versatile Brazilian is bound to move to the Rossoneri and the official details are expected to be out by the end of the transfer window, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

The 30-year-old Brazilian, who predominantly functions as a second striker and a right winger, is yet to agree personal terms of contract with Milan. However, Milan and Crotone have already reached an agreement for his deal.

Official contact has already been made between the parties, with advanced talks supposed to be held by today.

Sassuolo are also in line for his signature as a possible replacement for Jeremie Boga, if he leaves.

Messias played 36 times for Crotone the last season in Serie A, scoring nine goals and providing four assists in 3,218 total playing minutes throughout the season. Unfortunately, he could not save the club from slipping down to Serie B.
