Sport Expressen are reporting that AC Milan are close to buying 17 year old striker Emil Roback from Hammarby in Sweden with medicals pending. The report notes that he will be signed from the club where striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a part owner for about 1.5 million euros (SEK 15m). There are bonuses that can take fee up to 2 million euros (SEK 20 million). Milan have reportedly beaten out Arsenal and Bayern Munich for his signature.
Antonio Vitiello released a photo of Roback having dinner in Milan last night ahead of his medicals which are scheduled for today.
Hammarby's Sporting Director Jansson said via MilanNews.it:
“Emil is a striker with great physique, speed and is already an experienced scorer. He has a gift: the X-Factor. Roback is fast, strong and a natural goalscorer. He has good physique and extreme speed.”
