​AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has revealed that a move for highly coveted Roma starlet Alessio Romagnoli is '99.8 per cent done'.


Milan have already completed several high profile moves this summer, bringing in Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano, while a €25million move for Romagnoli appears to be on the verge of finalization.


Galliani said that, after speaking with Roma director Walter Sabatini, a deal had been struck and that a move would be completed shortly.



"The deal for Romagnoli is 99.8 per cent done," Galliani was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t ​Goal.com).


Sabatini then added: "We have an agreement with AC Milan for Romagnoli, the operation will be formalised on Monday. I greeted Romagnoli and I told him to make himself available for Milan."


Milan are believed to still be in the market for yet another marquee signing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic viewed as their ideal target although a return move for the former San Siro hero may not be financially viable.


Manager Sinisa Mihajlovic believes Ibrahimovic could be the difference between challenging to get back to Europe and firing Milan to the title: “He is a player who makes a difference and would be a phenomenal signing If we were to get him, we would be among the favourites for the title.”
