Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are keen to close the deal for Bordeaux midfielder Yacine Adli as soon as possible but the Rossoneri are only willing to offer so much for the player. The 21 year old is expected to be the fourth midfielder in the rotation but talks have slightly slowed down over the valuation of the player. The report adds that Arsenal FC, Tottenham Hotspur and LOSC Lille are also in the race for the midfielder.

Bordeaux’s Chief Scout spoke to Tuttosport via Calcio Mercato and said,

“I can’t say if Yacine will sign for Milan or not. But I assure you that we are talking about a guy with considerable potential. When did I see him for the first time? He was about 12-13 years old and played in the PSG youth teams.”

“[Seria A] It’s a difficult league, the defenders are very strong. But he’s not worried. He’s sure of himself, he knows what he can do. And he works hard every day to get stronger. Some time ago he told me: ‘I know that when I go to a big foreign club, I’ll be ready’. And today I really think that Adli has the right mind to defend the Rossoneri’s jersey.”
