Everton Soares is once again mentioned as a target of Milan, but the desire remains to sign Ángel Correa.
The transfer market ends in less than a week and Milan are still missing a reinforcement in attack, as the two-month pursue of Atlético Madrid’s Ángel Correa has not yielded the desired result yet.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio on Calciomercato l’Originale on Tuesday, Correa continues to be the number one target of the club. Ángel only wants the Rossoneri but the gap between the offer of Milan and the request of Atlético remains as always and there has not been any breakthrough in the form of the Spanish club lowering their demands, or the Diavolo increasing their offer.
Di Marzio claims, however, that Milan are evaluating alternatives to Correa and the name of Éverton has returned to fashion. The Brazilian winger was a primary target of Milan when Leonardo was still at the club but since he left there had been no developments on that front.
However, the Italian journalist suggests that Milan have re-established contacts with Grêmio to discuss the 23-year-old, who won the Copa América with Brazil at the start of the summer. In any case, there are major problems in making a deal for Éverton as he is not owned 100% by Grêmio, but instead his ownership is split between Grêmio, Fortaleza Esporte Clube and the agents Celso Rigo and Gilmar Veloz. With so many parties involved, it’s hard to imagine Milan striking a deal in time.
The Rossoneri would also need to make a sale in order to invest in Correa or Éverton, who is worth €40m according to Di Marzio. The mercato soon ends and the attacker is still missing.
