Just three days ago, the Daily Express claimed that the Gunners were leading AC Milan in the chase for the Italy Under-21 international’s signature; however, in reports cited by Football Italia, the 20-year-old has agreed personal terms with Rossoneri.
AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani is said to have met with Sergi Berti, the representative of Romagnoli, on Saturday morning in Forte dei Marmi – where personal terms and a preliminary contract were allegedly agreed upon.
His transfer to the San Siro could therefore be finalised quickly; yet the issue remains whether Roma are willing to sell.
Giallorossi are rumoured to have given the green light on defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa’s move to Olympique Lyonnais, which may result in a crucial role for Romagnoli at the Stadio Olimpico.
Romagnoli is valued at £24.4m, according to the Metro.
Celebrity supporter and shareholder Piers Morgan claimed that talks over the Frenchman swapping the Santiago Bernabeu for the Emirates this month had reached an ‘advanced’ stage.
