Seneweb via Sempre Milan are reporting that the entourage of Clube Brugge winger Krepin Diatta has discussed links with AC Milan. The 21 year old has 8 goals and 4 assists in all competitions this season. The winger has 13 senior caps for Senegal as well and even played in the final of the 2019 African Cup of Nations where he side lost to Bennacer’s Algeria.

The source said, “He will go to a club where the conditions for his development will be met. Each season he has to reach a milestone in his professional career. AC Milan is also a serious track, but in any case, the interests of the young footballer will be preserved.

Football Italia claim that Milan would be competing with Hertha Berlin and Watford for his signature. It may seem odd for Milan to target him unless they plan to revert to a 4-3-3 as the player is an out-and-out winger who could be stretched to be a secondary striker. But this season, Diatta has been moved to play as a RM where he would be in a similar role to Samu Castillejo thus he could come in as competition or depth.
