According to reports in Russia, Milan have agreed terms with Rubin Kazan midfielder Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, brokered by Kakha Kaladze.
Metaratings in Russia maintain the Georgia international is heading to San Siro to continue his career.
There had already been links several months ago, and his father Badri told the media recently that Kvaratskhelia will no longer play in Russia.
It’s reported the deal was brokered thanks to former Milan defender Kaladze, who helped connect the two clubs to reach a deal.
Kvaratskhelia is only 20 years old and plays on the left wing, but can also work on the right or in a more central attacking midfield role.
He has three goals in eight senior caps for Georgia and has been at Rubin Kazan since 2019.
Borussia Monchengladbach had also shown interest in the two-footed winger, but the reports suggest Milan have clinched an agreement with both the player and his club.
