Milan have announced the signing of promising attacker Charles De Ketelaere from Club Brugge.

The 21-year-old Belgium international has signed a five-year deal with the Serie A champions and joins for a reported fee of €36 million.

De Ketelaere – who scored 18 goals in all competitions last season and has won eight senior caps for Belgium since his debut in 2020 – has also been heavily linked with Leeds United in the Premier League.

At the age of 19 years and 224 days in October 2020, he became the second-youngest Belgian to score in the Champions League (after Anthony Vanden Borre) when he scored for Brugge against Zenit St. Petersburg.

De Ketelaere will wear the number 90 shirt and join fellow San Siro arrivals Divock Origi, Alessandro Florenzi and Junior Messias, with the latter two making their loan spells from last season permanent.
