AC Milan and Newcastle United are reportedly set to complete an agreement in the region of €80 million for Sandro Tonali. It is believed the magpies have already sent an offer around €70 million for the player to the Milan club, plus bonuses yesterday nearing the cutoff €80 million mark.
With Manager Eddie Howe hoping to add quality to the spine of his team, reports suggest the Englishman has placed the AC Milan’s defensive midfielder at the top of his wishlist for the transfer window.
Both clubs involved are set to reach an agreement within the next few days to favor the player and clubs.
