AC Milan to Enter Negotiations Over Fluminense Striker Richarlison in €15m Deal

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

AC Milan are looking to enter the transfer market again this summer in their pursuit of Brazilian youngster Richarlison. The Fluminense striker has become a target of Milan boss Vincenzo Montella after impressive performances in the Série A and with the Brazilian U20 side, according to ​Gianluca Di Marzio.

Richarlison would be joining the likes of Leonardo Bonucci, Hakan Calhanoglu and André Silva at the San Siro following a busy summer from AC Milan. The Italians are spending big in an attempt to reclaim their place amongst the European elite, having made ten signing already. 

​​Fluminense have set the 20-year-old's price tag at €15m in an attempt to hold onto their young star. Last summer, the Brazilian side lost their star midfielder to Serie A runners up AS Roma in a deal similar to the one of Richarlison. The midfielder, who is also part of the Brazilian U20 squad, joined Roma on a five-year deal and is deemed as a player for the future at the Stadio Olimpico. 


Richarlison is everything you expect from a young Brazilian striker. Pacey and skilful, the 20-year-old would fit the mould of a lot of strikers in the Serie A. He would join compatriots Felipe Anderson and Gabriel 'Gabigol' Barbosa in a league that is often a platform for Brazilian talent to move to the next level in their development.
