Milan (AFP) - AC Milan are on the verge of capturing Portugal sensation Andre Silva from Porto as the resurgent Serie A side continue to build for next season.
Television pictures early on Monday showed Silva, often described as the "the new Cristiano Ronaldo", on his way to undergo a medical in Milan, Italy.
The 21-year-old striker was a reported target for a number of top European clubs.
But after Milan failed in bids to land Andrea Belotti from Torino and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, Silva is now expected to sign for the seven-time European champions.
He would become their fourth recruit in as many weeks following the signing of Swiss left-back Ricardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg), Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie (Atalanta) and Argentinian centre-back Mateo Musaccio (Villarreal).
Milan were recently sold to Chinese investors by long-time club owner Silvio Berlusconi in a bid to inject fresh impetus into their attempt to rejoin European football's elite.
