Chelsea target Conti close to Milan deal

Atalanta right-back Andrea Conti, reportedly a target for Liverpool, Chelsea and Napoli, has agreed terms with AC Milan, says the player's agent.

Conti, one of the Bergamo club's star players in a historic season which saw them reach an unprecedented fourth spot on the Serie A table at the end of the season, is on the verge of snubbing what his agent referred to as 'important offers' in favour of a move to the Rossoneri.

Whether or not the move will go ahead is in the hands of Milan, who will be expected to improve on their initial offer of €20m for the highly-rated 23-year old. 

"I met with Milan on Thursday," the player's agent, Mario Giuffredi told GazzaMercato.

"We have an agreement on everything and the player is happy, he wants to go to Milan. It is decided, at least for us. 

"I cannot deny we had other important offers, but the Rossoneri wanted him most and made him feel important.

"Atalanta and Milan have a good relationship and there will be no problems – they already negotiated for Kessie," he continued, referring to the €20m sale of the Ivorian defensive midfielder.

Conti, a product of the Atalanta youth academy, had spent the majority of his playing career on the fringes of the Atalanta first XI and spent a significant amount of time on loan before being given the opportunity to shine for his club.
