AC Milan are pushing ahead in talks over the signing of Sven Botman in an attempt to get a deal wrapped up before the summer window, according to a report.
MilanNews writes that Casa Milan hosted the agency of Sven Botman yesterday, and during a meeting Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara reaffirmed their desire to sign the Dutchman because they view him as the ideal long-term partner to Fikayo Tomori in the heart of defence.
The appreciation is very much mutual as Botman would also like to move to Milan in the summer. There has been no talk of figures in detail, but the plan of action seems to be to find an agreement with the player himself after having found one with Lille.
It is good news for head coach Stefano Pioli who has been battling a defensive emergency at times this season and would welcome a reinforcement of such quality.
