Chievo Verona defender Francesco Acerbi is anxiously waiting for a deal with AC Milan to be sealed.

The centre-back, co-owned with Genoa, has been paired with the Diavolo and his agent was spotted at Milan HQ yesterday.

“I hope to join Milan,” the 23-year-old told TMW. “It would be a dream come true. I’m just waiting for my agent to tell me to sign.

“I’m happy because Milan are a really strong team, with many great champions. Such interest can only be pleasing.

“Over the past few months I have shown that I am a Serie A player and, to be honest, even I didn’t think I could end up at Milan.”
