With Paolo Maldini now at the club, AC Milan are looking to quickly wrap up the much talked deal for Sassuolo midfielder Stefano Sensi who is keen on the switch.

One of the major goals that AC Milan have set up this summer is signing Stefano Sensi. Currently under contract at Sassuolo, the young midfielder has everything in him to become a big name in the future. He can score goals, provide assists and offers stability in the midfield.

With a reasonable price tag and a lot of room to grow, Sensi could be the perfect fit for Milan. And according to Tuttosport, the Milan giants are still negotiating a deal with the club.

According to reports, former technical director, Leonardo was the one who had identified Sensi. Indeed the Brazilian had made considerable headway in bringing Sassuolo to the negotiation table. However, since his departure from AC Milan, the Neroverde halted negotiations.

Nonetheless, there is still a great chance for things to finalize soon since Sassuolo are open to selling the player. The player on his part, is eager to sign for AC Milan.

The Italian giants are also keen on wrapping this deal up as quickly as possible. Sensi on the other hand, is already in Milan for house hunting. The youngster has told his friends that he wants to join the club.

The player’s agent, Giuseppe Rossi, has further fanned the flames by saying that he is hopeful about the situation.

“Did we speak of Sensi and Mancini? No no. Is there an interest? I hope so. How was the meeting with Maldini? It went well.”

The club is also interested in signing Nicolo Barella from Cagliari. The youngster is attracting a lot of interest from a host of Italian sides, including Internazionale and Juventus. A bid believed to be in the region was €35 million plus performance-related bonuses was rejected but AC Milan are expected to return.
