AC Milan are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

The 17-year-old would provide a good variety to Milan’s defense.

According to the report, “Milan are reportedly in pole position to sign Paris Saint-Germain and France Under-18 defender Tanguy Kouassi. Kouassi does not turn 18 until next month, but he has already played 11 times for PSG’s first team this season, scoring twice. However, his contract expires on June 30 and Le10sport claims Milan are hoping to take full advantage. Furthermore, the Rossoneri are described as the ‘likeliest’ destination if a renewal is not agreed with the French giants. Kouassi was previously linked with RB Leipzig, whose chief Ralf Rangnick is seemingly on his way to San Siro.”


AC Milan will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Kouassi to join the club.

Good signing for AC Milan?

It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.

Tanguy Kouassi is very highly rated in France and he could be a superb long term signing for Milan.

It will be interesting to see if Milan make their move for the 17-year-old in the coming weeks.
