CM: Milan will try one more time for Buongiorno – Arsenal man among alternatives

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to try one more time to sign Alessandro Buongiorno from Torino but they will turn to alternative targets if they continue to meet a wall, a report claims.

According to are reporting, Torino president Urbano Cairo continues to insist that Buongiorno is not for sale even though Milan have offered cash plus Lorenzo Colombo as a counterpart, with €40m the starting price.

Milan will make one last attempt to convince Torino to review their position, even if there doesn’t seem to be much room for discussion based on the latest declarations. There’s no harm in trying, but presuming it will be another negative response the alternatives will be explored.

Lilian Brassier of Brest is one of the names being considered and he is worth €10-12m. There is at present a few million difference between that valuation and what Milan are looking to offer.

Tanguy Nianzou of Sevilla meanwhile is available on loan and is younger but also less tested at high levels despite having come through the academy at PSG and having moved to Bayern Munich before going to Andalusia.

However, there is another name: Milan’s transfer radars have also detected movement around the former Spezia centre-back Jakub Kiwior. Arsenal are very reluctant to let him go, especially with Tomiyasu’s commitment in the Asian Cup with Japan, but a loan cannot be excluded.

  1. Get Buongiorno even if it means we will have to spend an extra 5m. The talent, the qualities, the growth potential, the financial gains in the future should be the main factors when making a buy decision. Not the price tag only. Also you need to compare the price tag to what the other clubs are paying and getting paid for. This is call a market and all the players regulate prices in the market, you either play along or you play alone meaning you will have very little activity in such market.
