Milan have suddenly surged forward for Piotr Zielinski and expect to sign the Poland international from Udinese within days.
Sky Sport Italia pundit Gianluca Di Marzio claims Adriano Galliani entered into advanced negotiations with the Friulani today.
He was expressly requested by new Coach Vincenzo Montella for his midfield.
Zielinski spent last season on loan at Empoli and had been heavily linked with Liverpool, Napoli and Roma, but nothing was ever finalised.
His price-tag is in the region of €13m.
