AC Milan remain interested in Chievo Verona talent Samuele Vignato and could have the conditions to launch a move soon, according to a report.
Back in 2019, it was reported that Milan are interested in signing Chievo’s teenage starlet Emanuel Vignato, who is the brother of Samuele. Newspaper il Corriere di Roma claimed that Lazio are interested, along with Milan, Sampdoria, Bayern and Barcelona.
The report goes on to add that sides in Italy have an advantage over those abroad as Vignato’s younger brother is only 15, and the family wants them to move together, and now a link with Samuele himself has emerged.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Inter, Milan, Juventus and other Italian clubs are keen on landing the 17-year-old attacking midfielder, who amassed a remarkable 14 goals and 11 assists in 18 Primavera second division games last season.
Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also monitoring his situation and it seems that an upcoming Court of Arbitration for Sport verdict will be key. Tomorrow it will be known if Chievo’s appeal against exclusion from Serie B was successful. If it were rejected, Vignato could be allowed to leave.
