Fabrizio Romano via Calcio Mercato is reporting that AC Milan have two major midfield targets in place for the summer. RB Salzburg's Dominik Szoboszlai and Benfica's Florentino Luis. The former has been on a roll this season and was particularly impressive in his side Champions League campaign. The latter is a massive prospect who has not featured regularly for his first team but commands a massive 60 million fee as valued by his side. Luis was targeted in the January transfer window by Milan but an agreement was not reached because of differing valuations. Romano notes, “They are all names of young players with significant potential. Of course, the most welcome in this list are Szoboszlai and Florentino, but we do not exclude surprises.”
@AntoVitiello : Milan works discreetly for Dominik Szoboszlai. The club wants to reduce Salzburg's demands. Fierce competition for the Hungarian midfielder born in 2000, but it is one of the most followed profiles, just for club policy. pic.twitter.com/NnGhZOIH88— TeamMilanAC (@TeamMilanAC) May 4, 2020
This contrasts the story from Daniele Longo that we reported on here yesterday as he discussed Sandro Tonali from Brescia as the prime target with Szoboszlai as the back up. The common denominator in the two reports is therefore the Hungary international from RB Salzburg who is valued at about 30 million. The 19 year old is clearly a target for Milan and the arrival of Ralf Rangnick who currently works for Red Bull is expected to contribute to the ease of this signing. The midfielder has significant experience over Luis and could be a good addition to the midfield given his box to box abilities that would accentuate Bennacer well.
