Acerbi awaiting agent's confirmation on AC Milan move

The 24-year-old Chievo defender, who only arrived in Verona last summer as part of a co-ownership deal with Genoa, is on the verge of joining the Rossoneri
Francesco Acerbi has revealed that he is eagerly awaiting word from his agent regarding his proposed switch to AC Milan.

The Chievo centre-back is expected to move to San Siro in the coming days as the Rossoneri set about strengthening their back line following the departure of legendary defender Alessandro Nesta.

Acerbi freely admits that he cannot wait to finally put pen to paper on a deal, even if he still cannot quite believe that Milan are interested in him.

“It would be a dream come true," the 24-year-old told "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 but, to be honest, even I didn’t think I could end up at Milan.”

Acerbi, who started his professional career at Pavia, only joined Chievo from Reggina last summer as part of a co-ownership deal with Genoa.
