“Gustavo Gomez will be Milan’s first choice defender for the next 10 years,” assures Lanus President Nicolas Russo.
The versatile 23-year-old Paraguay international can play in the centre, right or left and was snapped up this month for around €8m.
“Without a shadow of a doubt he is ready for this step up,” Lanus President Russo told Tuttomercatoweb.
“Gustavo is an extraordinary player, very strong and certainly ready to face this new adventure. His greatest strengths are in the air and in challenges.
“Gomez has a winning mentality and will be Milan’s first choice defender for the next 10 years.”
The patron also confirmed that the Rossoneri faced a battle to sign Gustavo Gomez.
“I can confirm that Milan, Fiorentina and several Premier League clubs wanted him.”
