Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: The Gabonese striker’s name is one that’s synonymous with goals. The prolific forward scored 40 goals in 46 appearances last season, making him one of Europe’s top goal-scorers last season. La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that Milan has made a €60m offer for the Gabonese international, but their proposal still falls short of the €70m valuation pinned by Dortmund on their star striker. With Chelsea being the only other club in contention for his signature, Milan has offered a massive €8m to the player in annual wages, which would make him one of the highest-earning players in the Serie A. The player’s agent, however, has demanded €12m which would match the offer made by Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian.
The ball now rests in Dortmund’s court.
Lucas Biglia: The Argentine midfielder has been included in the pre-season squad list issued by Lazio. The Regista failed to show up for his medical and has asked for a delay in his reporting time; it now appears that Milan has less than 48 hours to seal a deal for the player. Milan seems to be struggling with meeting the valuation made by Lazio on the midfielder and are offering Gianluca Lapadula in a player-plus-cash exchange.
Milan has put a price tag of €12m on the striker and would only need to pay an additional €7m-€8m to Lazio in such a scenario. If the move falls through, Lucas Biglia will apparently return for a fifth season with Lazio.
Bertolacci: The Italian looks set to depart the San Siro with a loan move to Genoa looking likely. There is still a lot of talking to be done, but the club and player seem to be in agreement and any departure is being discussed in positive terms.
Vangioni, Ely: The duo of Rodrigo Ely and Leonel Vangioni looks set to leave, with the Argentine full-back looking to move back home to River Plate. Any move would need to be free as River Plate are not looking to spend big on the left-back. Rodrigo Ely’s future looks a little less definite, but the player is set to leave regardless.
