L’Equipe: AC Milan to sign Lyon right-back Pierre Kalulu

AC Milan are close to signing promising Lyon right-back Pierre Kalulu, L’Equipe reports.

The 20-year-old has hesitated between a move to Italy or staying with Lyon, but has chosen Serie A.

Although a turnaround can’t be ruled out, everything points to Kalulu heading to the San Siro.

Kalulu is a France under-20 international but has yet to break through to the OL first team.

His UEFA Youth League performances, which included assists against Man City and Barcelona, showcased his talents.

However, the presence of Léo Dubois, Rafael and Kenny Tete at Lyon is blocking his route to Rudi Garcia’s first team.

Bayern Munich tried to sign Kalulu earlier this year, but were knocked back by Lyon.

Bayern made a new attempt to sign Kalulu in recent days, but Milan sporting director Paulo Maldini’s words convinced him.

Kalulu is expected in Italy over the coming days to sign his first professional contract.
