Another day, another youth talent linked with a possible move to Milan. This time, it’s former Arsenal midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide, who spent last year at French club Angers.
Reine-Adelaide, who only joined the Ligue 1 club last summer from Arsenal U23s in a deal that was worth a reported €1.6 million, has apparently gotten some interest from Milan in recent weeks. Reine-Adelaide made 36 appearances for Angers in all competitions for Angers, scoring three goals and adding three assists.
Again, this looks to be a deal for the future, and Gazidis might be the reason for this transfer, as he would have at least been aware of the midfielder while he was working in North London.
Of course, the rumored price tag is over €11 million, so perhaps this is just an agent looking to get his client a better deal, but if Milan can spend money wisely on youth prospects, then perhaps they won’t need to overpay when the players enter their prime.
On to the links.

Massimo Cellino has said that Sandro Tonali is ‘not for sale’ which, as any Leeds fan will tell you, means that Tonali will leave in six months for a fraction of the price the midfielder could have commanded this summer. [Football-Italia.net]
