AC Milan have completed the signings of Francesco Acerbi and Kevin Constant from Genoa, the Rossoblu have announced on their official website.
Francesco Acerbi was partly owned by Chievo, but Genoa purchased the other half of his contract before selling the it to AC Milan.
“Genoa Cfc announce we have taken 50 per cent of Francesco Acerbi’s contract from Chievo Verona and consequently sold half his contract to AC Milan,” read a statement on club’s official website.
Kevin Constant, who only joined Genoa last summer from Chievo, has joined the Rossoneri on loan with an option to buy.
“Also finalised with AC Milan today was the transfer of Kevin Constant on loan with the Lombardy club having the option to buy at the end of the season.”
Francesco Acerbi is a towering centre-back, who can also play on the right, and he featured 17 times for Chievo last season.
Kevin Constant is a cultured midfielder, who joined Genoa in a €7 million deal from Chievo, but he can also play as a left-sided defender.
The two players arrived to San Siro to increase competition for places after it was revealed that Mathieu Flamini would not be signing a new deal and that Sulley Muntari was set to miss six months of action through injury.
