Milan are close to securing Andrea Poli, beating Juventus in a sprint finish for the Sampdoria star.
The midfielder is currently on international duty and scored his first senior Italy goal in the 4-0 friendly win over San Marino.
He had been heavily linked with Juventus and confessed Andrea Pirlo was his “idol,” but the latest reports suggest the Rossoneri have won the transfer race.
The Corriere dello Sport claims Milan are very close to completing a deal for the 23-year-old midfielder, who spent six months on loan at Inter last season.
