17-year old Michelis, who represented the under 17 and under 20 Asteras Tripolis teams during the 2017/2018 campaign, is capable of playing either as a centre-back or further up the pitch in midfield. Regarded as boasting real potential, Michalis attracted the attention of Italian scouts when playing in the country with the national team, resulting in AC Milan making a move for the teenager.
According to information provided by gazzetta.gr, Michelis successfully passed his medical at AC Milan last week and is now expected to put pen-to-paper on a contract with the Italian giants. Asteras Tripolis will receive 400,000 euros for Michelis’ transfer, including a future resale value.
