Bennacer begins Milan medical

Empoli midfielder Ismael Bennacer has arrived for the first part of his medical with Milan.

Bennacer checked into La Madonnina clinic on Monday afternoon for tests, just hours after becoming an African champion with Algeria.

Empoli already confirmed his transfer to the Rossoneri, with sporting director Pietro Accardi likening the player to Gennaro Gattuso.

The Rossoneri are expected to pay in the region of €16m for the 21-year-old after Arsenal chose not to take up their buyback option.

He has agreed a five-year contract with the Diavolo.
