Report: Kouassi Negotiating With AC Milan Over Potential Transfer

Each day that goes by is another reminder that Tanguy Kouassi is unlikely to sign a professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

The 17-year-old defender is coveted by several top teams in Europe, including RB Leipzig and FC Barcelona. One club that might beat everyone to Kouassi is AC Milan.

According to Sempre Milan, sources close to the club tell them that negotiations between Kouassi and Milan are underway as the player has said yes to the opportunity to play for the Rossoneri.

Leonardo has previously stated that he has done everything possible to convince Kouassi to stay but it’s up to him to want to remain in Paris and be part of the project.

This season, Kouassi has made 13 appearances with the first team and scored three goals. With Thiago Silva expected to leave at the end of the season when his contract expires, Kouassi will have even more opportunities to feature in the same starting lineup as Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé. That, plus UEFA Champions League football, is apparently not enough to convince the teenager to stay.
