CM: Astute signings, a new striker and a centre-back – Milan’s plans for the January window

By Oliver Fisher -

The summer mercato may have only ended on Monday, but Milan are already looking ahead to the January transfer window.

According to Calciomercato.com, directors Frederic Massara and Paolo Maldini will take a weekend off before starting to evaluate players ahead of January.

The Rossoneri management fully intend to further strengthen the team in all departments, and while there will be no €50m signings, there will be more smart and astute signings to reinforce and compliment the team.

After unsuccessful attempts for Ozan Kabak and Mohamed Simakan of Schalke and Strasbourg respectively, the hunt for a new centre-back have not stopped.

The part of the budget allocated to signing a new central defender will be used in the winter transfer window though, it has been confirmed, but the demands of the Bundesliga and the Ligue 1 club were too high.

The report adds that some of the opinions Maldini and Massara have about the current squad will change before the window reopens in January. For example, they will try to bring a new striker to Milanello who can allow Zlatan Ibrahimovic to catch his breath.

    Why not sign best young South-American talent, who is a target man, to be deputy to Zlatan! And also young 16 year old Luna as well from Argentina! And start to talk with Viola for Milenkovic”s price-tag, and offer Conti as part of the deal! Otherwise we should be okay, of course we must renew Hakan and Gigio! And i really hope we already are in talks with Marseille for Thauvin”s signature! If we can do all that off the field between now and January, we can be happy! And as a result, sporting results will follow! Oh, i forgot getting option to buy from Real for Brahim Diaz”s loan deal should also be priority of us! We have three moths time frame, so we must do those above mentioned thing as quickly as possible, because we saw just now that teams and agents will use the fact against us , that our time is running out and we are desperate!
