Gianluca di Marzio informs that Soualiho Meite will join Torino’s AC Milan today on a loan deal with a purchase option. The six-month loan would cost EUR 500,000, with a purchase option of EUR 8.5 million-plus a bonus of EUR 1.5 million.
Via MilanNews.it, La Gazzetta Dello Sport states that Milan beat out the likes of Napoli for the midfielder’s signature and mentions that the deal will be concluded either today or tomorrow.
The 26-year-old midfielder could be available for Monday’s Milan clash against Cagliari. For Franck Kessie, Meite is considered a thorough choice to ensure that the Rossoneri are protected in the long season ahead. Before his Serie A spell, Meite played extensively in France for LOSC Lille, AJ Auxerre, FGC Bordeaux, and even Monaco.
