European giants AC Milan are now looking to seal a loan agreement for Tottenham Hotspur starlet Pape Matar Sarr, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Paratici eyes exits…
Amid their plethora of transfer activity, Tottenham’s sporting director Fabio Paratici is reportedly also trying to seal some player exits to balance the squad.
Six summer signings have arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence.
Following on from those arrivals, it has been reported that Paratici and Spurs officials are looking to agree outgoings, with the likes of Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks most heavily tipped to leave the Premier League club.
The Latest: Sarr wanted…
As per 90min, it appears that Milan are attempting to seal a loan move for promising Spurs ace Sarr.
Indeed, the report claims that Stefano Pioli’s side have opened talks to sign the African sensation, who was recently voted the continent’s Young Player of the Year.
Milan are apparently ‘looking to strike a deal’ for Sarr but Spurs are pushing for a straight season-long loan with no purchase option, coming after the 19-year-old’s impressive season on loan at Metz.

The Verdict: Next stage…
Sarr could well benefit from taking the next stage of his development and Milan seems like an ideal place to do just that, especially considering that the starlet would be competing in one of Europe’s top leagues and for an historic club who are the reigning Serie A champions.
Having been hailed as ‘most impressive‘ for his time in France last year by a director at an unnamed Ligue 1 club, a step up to the San Siro could well be the 19-year-old’s reward.
It would also give him a platform to impress that he might not have at Tottenham, for whom he has yet to even appear in a competitive matchday squad.
