These are the latest transfer news headlines to come out of AC Milan.

Club Brugge forward wants Milan move

Club Brugge forward Noa Lang, who has been compared to Neymar, is interested in plying his trade in Italy with AC Milan, according to a report.

Lang is set to leave the Belgian side in the summer, with the club valuing him at €25 million, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. He has been attracting interest from all across Europe, especially the Premier League.

While he has spoken favourably about some of the clubs who have been touted as his potential destination in the past, the Dutch attacker is most interested in playing for AC Milan and will wait to listen to offers from the Rossoneri first before any other.

The 22-year-old will give Milan boss Stafano Pioli plenty of options as he is a versatile forward who can be deployed on either the left or the right flank as well as down the middle as a supporting striker, a centre forward or even an attacking midfielder.

Lang has 19 goal contributions in all competitions so far this season for Club Brugge.

Juventus offer winger to Milan for €40m

Juventus have signed Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina for a few in the range of €70 million and as a result will have to sell to balance the books.

One of the casualties of this signing is Dejan Kulusevski, who has been subject of transfer speculation since the beginning of the season. The Swede was already on the fringes of the team but slowly found his way back into the team discussion following a long-term injury to Federico Chiesa.

With Vlahovic arriving, reports from Calciomercato now claim that the club has put Kulusevski back on the transfer list and have also offered the winger to AC Milan.

Juventus offered Milan the chance to sign Kulusevski on a two-year paid loan of €5m with a mandatory obligation to buy set at €35m. The reports also claim that Milan have even talked with the 21-year-old’s representatives and will be making a decision on Friday.

Milan, however, are not in favour of striking a deal for the winger for the price Juventus are demanding and it remains to be seen if there will be any negotiations at all.

Milan target Sanches as Kessie replacement alongside long-term target Botman

Milan are now plotting a double summer raid on Lille to address two key areas in defence and midfield, according to new reports.

The Rossoneri have had their sights set on Sven Botman for a while and have even approached LOSC Lille for the player on a few occasions. However, fresh reports now claim that Milan is also looking at Renato Sanches to replace Franck Kessie at the club.

Italian outlet La Repubblica reports that while a deal for either of the two appears impossible to complete in the January transfer window, Milan is ready to make Botman their first signing of the summer. They will then follow it up with a bid for Sanches, who is expected to be available for between €25-30 million.

The duo would reunite with Mike Maignan in Milan, who signed last summer to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma after winning Ligue 1 with the French club.

Castillejo finally gets way out as Valencia inquire about winger

Reports claim that Valencia are hoping to close the signing of Samu Castillejo on loan with an option to buy before the January window closes.

Milan are currently negotiating a deal with the Spanish side for Castillejo that is very likely to be completed before the window closes. Castillejo has been deemed surplus to requirements at Milan by Pioli and has barely gotten any game time this season.

Milan have waited a while to get a good deal for the 27-year-old and now, the former Villarreal winger could be returning to Spain.

It is also reported that Real Betis and Espanyol have contacted Milan for the winger, but talks with Valencia appear to be more advanced.

The two clubs are discussing a paid loan with an option to buy for Castillejo, whose contract with the Rossoneri expires in 2023.
