AC Milan closing in on €30m transfer of Brazil’s next superstar

AC Milan are in pole position to sign Brazilian football’s next big talent, according to a report.

Lincoln, 17, is regarded as on of the South American country’s hottest prospects.

The Flamengo youngster was one of Brazil’s stand-out players at last-year’s U17 Fifa World Cup and he scored three times in seven games as Brazil finished third in India.

Brazilian oulet Lancenet via Calciomercato suggest that AC Milan continue to monitor the situation of the striker.

The Rossoneri are apparently ready to pay €30million for Lincoln, who has made three appearances for Flamengo in the league.

Lincoln’s current contract at Flamengo expires in 2020 and he is expected to fetch the Brazilian club big money.
