Brescia star Sandro Tonali has arrived in Milan for a medical ahead of his initial loan.
At a GlanceSports – The Italian midfielder is close to completing his long-awaited move to AC Milan,
After three impressive years at the Mario Rigamonti Stadium.
Quoted from Goal, that AC Milan will sign Tonali on loan for one season at a cost of € 10 million (£ 9m / $ 12m),
With the option to buy it outright for € 15m (£ 14m / $ 18m) next summer.
The final deal could be worth a total of € 35 million (£ 32 million / $ 41 million) including extras,
The 20-year-old will be inaugurated at the San Siro after completing a medical evaluation on Wednesday.
Tonali has sought permission from Rossoneri legend Gennaro Gattuso,
Currently serving as the head coach of Napoli, to wear the club's famous number 8 jersey,
Having grown up idolizing the former Italy international.
The Brescia playmaker gave clear hints of his upcoming move to Milan on social media earlier this week,
Posted a photo of himself as a child wearing one of the club's old jerseys with the caption: “Blame the fairy tale.”
Inter and Roma have been heavily linked with a move for Tonali with their Serie A rivals in recent months,
Meanwhile Barcelona and Manchester United are also credited with an interest in his services.

However, the Italy Under-21 international has chosen to continue his development at the San Siro,
With Stefano Pioli's men expected to fight for a place in the Champions League after finishing an impressive 2019-20 season.
The midfielder was powerless to prevent the club from falling to Serie B last season, with the team finally finishing 19th after accumulating a total of only 25 points from their 38 matches.
Milan have enjoyed a much more productive season, and have collected more points than any other team to secure a place in the Europa League.
Tonali will become the Rossoneri's fifth new signing this summer, with Alexis Saelemaekers, Simon Kjaer and Pierre Kalulu having joined the club on a permanent deal, and Brahim Diaz arriving on loan from Real Madrid.
