ROME: AC Milan are set to sign Nancy midfielder Bakaye Traore on a free transfer in the summer, according to L’Equipe.
The Mali international has shone this term for the Ligue 1 side, and has reportedly drawn interest from Newcastle, Aston Villa, Lille and Olympique de Marseille.
Traore is out of contract at the end of the season, and this will allow him to freely jump ship on a Bosman transfer in the upcoming transfer window.
The Rossoneri have reportedly won the battle for the midfielder’s signature, tying him to a three-year deal which will come in effect in the summer.
As of yet there has been no confirmation from either club, but it looks increasingly likely that Traore will leave the French outfit at the end of the campaign.
