The Rossonerri are wasting no time to prepare for next year’s campaign as Milan have placed the dominant Spaniard Luis Alberto on their list of transfer targets for the summer.
As it stands, the midfield maestro’s contract with Lazio is set to expire in the summer of 2025. However, it seems like the 29 year-old might be leaning towards the exit door with the aspirations of seeking a new destination in order to play Champions League football.
As a result, the Biancocelesti could be left with no other choice but to offload the attacking midfield ace to another club, ending his six-year stay at the Stadio Olimpico since arriving from the Premier League giants Liverpool after several underwhelming loan spells within the La Liga.
So far this season, Alberto has played a pivotal role within Sarri’s side as the Spanish international managed to score four goals and provide eight assists in 28 games played for the Biancocelesti within the Serie A. As a result, his incredible form has attracted the attention of several giants within the top-flight league of Italy.
According to Calciomercato, Milan are eyeing the Alberto very closely as they are preparing to submit a bid around the region of €35M in order to lure the attacking midfielder to the San Siro and away from the capital next season.
As it stands, Pioli will most likely be short on central midfielders as Frank Kessié is set to depart to the Spanish giants Barcelona at the end of the season on a free transfer after having signed a 5-year pre-contract agreement at a salary of €6.5M per-season plus add-ons.
As a result, Il Diavolo are eager to secure the signing of Alberto as the club believes that he possesses all the tools within his artillery to fill the void within their squad play a crucial role for the Rossonerri throughout next year’s campaign.
