AC Milan are said to be leading the race for the signature of Ghanaian midfielder, Pierre Dwomoh.
Milan’s interest in the 17-year-old is no secret, but they are now taking the necessary steps to try and sign him in the current transfer window.
The club’s scouts have been watching him for months and gathering all necessary information, while Italian media have confirmed the indiscretions coming from Belgium.
Dwomoh is likely to start with the youth team which is set to compete in the Uefa Youth League against the best academies in Europe, according to the latest from Sportitalia.
He played in Genk’s U21 team last season and can play either as a central midfielder or as an attacking midfielder.
Given his exploits, the youngster has attracted the attention of both Antwerp and Club Brugge domestically, but it is Milan that are currently ahead of the competition.
Genk have a reputation for refining top young talents, with the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Sander Berge among the players who have gone on to play important roles at top European clubs after coming through the Belgian club.
