CM: Furlani speaks with Torino regarding full-back and offers a counterpart

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s manoeuvres in the transfer window are not stopping with the midfield and the attack because they are also looking at a new right-back, a report claims.

According to, Milan CEO Giorgio Furlani yesterday had a first direct contact with Torino regarding right-back Wilfried Singo, who is seen as an opportunity to seize given his deal expires in a year.

The Ivorian is held in very high regard by the management, but city rivals Inter are also thinking about Singo in what would be yet another mercato derby after Marcus Thuram and Davide Frattesi.

Milan have taken concrete action by also offering Junior Messias as part of the deal, but at present Torino would prefer €10-12m in cash if they are to part with the 22-year-old.

The Rossoneri are not in desperate need of a new right-back and will only strike if something emerges that is too good to turn down.

Ivan Fresneda is another name that Geoffrey Moncada likes, but Real Valladolid’s requests are considered too high and Pioli wants a player with more experience like Singo.

    1. RB can use the outline when defending, in the central positions it is more tactical and exposed to multiple threats. I think he could be certainly worked on but he is also not bad going forward per se.
      Tall players in wing positions are becoming more normal too, I mean Leao for example isn’t small either, even Theo to some degree.
      Singo also surely someone you can use at CB should there be a crisis with multiple CBs out.

  1. That points towards a Kalulu exit imo. Selling Kalulu for 30m+ and getting Singo for 10m + Messias would be great financial leverage.
    Singo is not a worse (arguably better) RB than Kalulu and could be used as emergency CB (with a quality loss).
    However we should also make sporting progress, not only financial one.

  2. Why is this necessary? We need quality replacement on LB first. No project whatsoever, this is only to sell Kalulu for profit and capital gain on books while patch it up with some average, cheap and half worthy player.

  3. “Inter are also thinking about Singo”

    That’s the cue to move on to other targets then. We all know how this will end.

  4. Don’t want this clown, logical thing is to get Mazzochi who can cover left back and right back and most importantly italian, so sick of us being linked with every bloody nation apart from our own, we need identity, we are an Italian club
