Everton are on the verge of completing a deal to land an AC Milan midfielder, according to the latest reports from Italy.
Transfer outlet TuttoMercatoWeb claims that the Toffees are closing in on a deal for Andrea Bertolacci, who spent last season on loan at Genoa from the Serie A giants.
Bertolacci joined Milan back in 2015 in a €20m deal from Roma, but never settled in at the San Siro and has promptly been linked with a departure.
The Rome-born former Italy U21 international has reportedly held crunch talks with Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso over his future, and is understood to be surplus to requirements.
The report claims that Everton may only have to spend £5m to bring the 27-year-old to Goodison Park, and that he will be offered a five-year deal and could land an extra £1.5m in bonuses.
