Rafael Leao has Milan medical

Lille striker Rafael Leao has checked in for his Milan medical ahead of an initial €30m transfer.

Leao landed in Milan on Tuesday morning, and he is now at La Madonnina clinic to undergo medical checks, prior to signing a five-year contract.

The Rossoneri are paying €30m plus bonuses for the 20-year-old, although Sky Sport Italia does not mention whether the deal includes Primavera defender Tiago Djalo.

He will fill the void left by Patrick Cutrone, who completed a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday.

Leao scored eight goals in 24 Ligue 1 appearances for Lille last season, helping them to a runners-up finish.

A Portugal Under-21 international, he can also play as a second striker or on the left wing.
