AC Milan have been the most active of any top Serie A club this summer but their work is not yet done as some finishing pieces for the squad are being sought.
According to Calciomercato.com, the main focuses will be a replacement for Fodè Ballo-Tourè as the new deputy to Theo Hernandez, with Riccardo Calafiori of Basel linked.
There could also be the arrival of a right-back too such as Wilfried Singo from Torino given that Junior Messias may head there in an exchange deal, but the big news is that there is the real possibility that another striker will arrive.
The management are studying the potential arrival of another No.9 to join Olivier Giroud and Noah Okafor with the club evaluating some targets, though Lorenzo Colombo could remain too.
Some names have emerged too as being on the list, starting with Santiago Gimenez who scored 18 goals in 37 games with Feyenoord last season, including one against Lazio in the Europa League. However, he would cost €25m.
Hugo Ekitike is also being observed, having been bought by PSG for €28.5m from Stade de Reims. He wants to play more, and the idea of joining the Rossoneri appeals even if things have cooled down in the last few days.
Rodrigo Ribeiro is on the list too, having become the second-youngest debutant in Sporting CP’s history at 16 years, 10 months and 9 days. The 18-year-old is a physical and talented centre-forward, who scored 7 goals in 9 UEFA Youth League games last season.
Then there is Benjamin Sesko, who recently moved from Red Bull Salzburg to RB Leipzig. In Germany he risks finding very little playing time, and that’s why Geoffrey Moncada could try to sit down at the table with the German club to talk about an intriguing solution that can make everyone happy.
Finally Milan have Alejo Veliz on their list. The Argentine talent was a great protagonist at the U20 World Cup, but his non-EU status makes his arrival in this session impossible (unless the rules change regarding British players), but it is a profile that is very popular and the management are eyeing him closely.
