Ivory coast global Franck Kessie is headed to the San Siro after helping Atalanta to their best ever Serie A finish.

Milan are on the verge of completing a €40million move for Porto striker Andre Silva, according to O Jogo. It is a dream to be here, everyone knows the greatness of the Rossoneri and the champions who have been here.

Former chief Silvio Berlusconi sold the club to Chinese company Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux after 30 years in charge for £628m.

Silva, 21, underwent his medical at La Madonnina clinic on Monday ahead of a transfer reportedly worth €38million, including add-ons.

The exciting Portuguese prospect is set to become Milan's fourth summer signing, after Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie and Ricardo Rodriguez.

He will have his medical tomorrow morning at 07.30am local time before he is presented to the media as their latest new signing.

The striker has already racked up seven goals from eight caps in an impressive start to his burgeoning global career.

That comes after he started Portugal's 3-0 win against Latvia on Friday, scoring in the 67th minute.

Ben Gladwell reports on Serie A, the Italian national team and the Bundesliga for ESPN FC, UEFA and the Press Association.
