AC Milan are poised to seal the signing of a top Arsenal target, while Barcelona and Juventus are in talks over a midfielder trade, according to Sunday’s European papers.
MILAN PLOT DEADLINE DAY RAID FOR GREMIO STAR
AC Milan are looking to strike where Arsenal failed and agree a deal for Gremio striker Everton Soares.
The Brazil forward was on Unai Emery’s list of transfer targets this summer, but a move never materialised with Arsenal instead signing Lille’s Nicolas Pepe in a deal that will cost £72m.
However, Everton now looks set to move to Milan, despite their initial €30m offer being rejected, reports Calciomercato.
The Italian outlet say Gremio rate the player at €35m and it’s thought a deal should be struck before the transfer window slams shut on Monday.
Milan had initially wanted Angel Correa from Atletico Madrid, but with that deal off the table, Sky Italia claim they moved for the Brazilian instead after also considering approaches for Memphis Depay, Christian Kouame and Mariano Diaz.
