Daniele Longo for Calcio Mercato is reporting that AC Milan have found an agreement in principle for midfielder Yacine Adli after about a week of negotiation. The agreement is for 10 million euros plus bonuses for the France U21 international to be the fourth midfielder for the Rossoneri this season. The approach for the 21 year old has become that much more important since Franck Kessie is now injured and could miss some games at the start of the season in addition to the AFCON commitment in the winter.

La Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan are working tirelessly to close this deal but want to ensure they do so on their terms. The midfielder is appreciated by the Rossoneri given his versatility and ability to contribute as much in attack as he can in defense. The player came through the PSG academy and has been at Bordeaux for a few seasons now.
