AC Milan Snap Up Ex-Barca Playmaker Halilovic

AC Milan have signed 22-year-old midfielder Alen Halilovic from Hamburg on a three-year contract as Gennaro Gattuso prepares his squad for the 2018-19 Serie A campaign.

The highly rated Croatia international scored two goals in 20 La Liga appearances for Las Palmas last season as he completed a two-year loan spell, having played just six league games for Hamburg.

Now he will be tasked with adding to a new-look Milan squad under Gennaro Gattuso that will set its sights on the Champions League next season after an extended period away from European competition.

A surprise signing, a young talent: AC Milan have signed Alen Halilovic to build on the desire to create a stronger and younger team,” the Rossoneri signalled in a statement released on their official website.

“Alen has great potential, though his career has not yet flourished. He arrives in Serie A fully motivated, ready for that boost following his spell in La Liga.
