Report: Leao to Milan for €35m

Milan have reportedly agreed a €35m deal with Lille for Portugal Under-21 striker Rafael Leao.

RMC Sport follows up a claim by Portuguese journalist Claudia Garcia that Leao is on his way to Milan.

The radio station adds Lille will receive 20 percent of a future sale for the 20-year-old, who will arrive for a medical in the coming days.

The forward had initially been put forward as a target for Napoli, but the Partenopei are instead trying to sign his strike partner Nicolas Pepe.

He could replace Patrick Cutrone, with Wolverhampton Wanderers understood to be close to agreeing a fee for the hitman.

Leao joined the French side from Sporting CP last summer and helped them qualify for the Champions League with his eight Ligue 1 goals.
