Origi’s arrival, De Ketelaere’s competition and Newcastle’s huge Botman bid

Journalist Gianluca Di Marzio gave a round-up of the latest AC Milan news during his segment on Calciomercato L’originale last night.

He spoke on Sky (via MilanNews) and took stock of what is currently happening in Milan’s mercato, confirming that Divock Origi will arrive in Italy on Monday evening and on Tuesday he will undergo his medical examinations ahead of joining the Rossoneri on a free transfer.

Regarding Sven Botman, Lille are insisting that the player accept a move to Newcastle United, who have bid €40m plus €5m in bonuses, but the player is waiting for Milan as they are his preferred destination.

Milan remains in contact with Charles De Kateleare’s agents but there is also competition from Leeds United in the Premier League to contend with. In short, accelerations are needed on multiple fronts if the Rossoneri are to strengthen the squad by signings their main targets for each position, or they risk missing out.
