AC Milan and Manchester United are interested in signing Fluminense striker Richarlison, our transfer pundit Fabrizio Romano can exclusively report. The 20-year-old has been scouted several times by both European giants and the Brazilian club have slapped a € 20 million price-tag on the versatile front-man.

Richarlison is a classic centre forward who can also play as attacking winger and AC Milan have already made contact with the player’s entourage to sign him.

The rossoneri have already signed 10 players this summer and are considering an offer for the talented Brazilian striker as well.

It is possible, however, that AC Milan won’t sign the Brazilian during the current transfer window but will keep monitoring the player during the coming months before making an opening bid. AS Roma had also made an attempt to sign him a few months ago offering Gerson in a player-plus cash swap deal. Fluminense, however, rejected the giallorossi offer and AC Milan are now keeping a close eye on the 20-year-old.
