Denis Praet has been hugely successful during his time at Sampdoria and it appears that a move to San Siro could be on the cards.

Marco Giampaolo is a huge fan of Denis Praet whom he coached during his time at Sampdoria. Now at Milan,the Italian wants to be reunited with the Belgian midfielder.

Denis Praet is one of those midfielders who are likely to bring a lot of dynamism to Milan’s overall gameplay. With the club already signing Krunic and Bennacer, Milan are keen on bringing the former Anderlecht man.

Doria want at least 25 million Euros for the talented midfielder who scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists for the Genoese club last season.

Denis Praet is a classic modern player with the sort of attacking instincts that would be useful for any team. Playing down the left side of midfield, the Belgian is technically accomplished and has a really good understanding of the game.

These are the traits that have forced Milan into seriously consider signing Denis Praet this summer.

Praet came into prominence during his time at Anderlecht with whom he played with the sort of flair that wooed away many teams in Italy. Sampdoria eventually signed him in 2016 and have benefited from the move.

And now with Milan in the mix, Denis Praet may consider moving to the San Siro according to Gazzetta dello Sport. Moreover, with Marco Giampaolo already there, the Belgian international would love to be reunited with a manager who has always considered him one of his favourite players.

However, it remains to be seen if Paolo Maldini would really be willing to spend so much money on the midfielder.

While Denis Praet has all the qualities to become a great player, he has always been rather inconsistent which is why his stats are not the sort of stats that would complement with his transfer fees.

Moreover, fans might not be too eager to see another mid-table signing keeping in view how much money the likes of Inter Milan, Juventus and Napoli are spending. And while Denis Praet may turn out to be a success at San Siro, the player will have to perform a lot better for the Rossoneri if he wants to have a chance of winning over the fans who aren’t easily impressed.
