Five players have been mentioned as possible options for the January transfer window as AC Milan look to add some experience to their squad.
The Rossoneri’s young squad have struggled to start the season as Marco Giampaolo was sacked as head coach after just 111 days. The team sit in 13th place having lost five of their first nine games.
The club’s board have come under fire, and director Zvonomir Boban has vocally expressed his displeasure at certain things to do with the club, such as not being able to sign more experience in the summer and Elliott having a ‘different dream’ to him.
However, Ivan Gazidis acknowledged at Monday’s shareholders’ meeting that the team may be too young, hinting that experience could be added in January to help add some leadership.
According to a report from Calciomercato.it there are five names that Milan may consider to fulfil that very need, namely Adam Lallana, Shkodran Mustafi, Pedro, Olivier Giroud and Mario Mandzukic.
It was recently claimed by the same outlet, Milan are one of two clubs in Italy who are interested in the idea of signing Lallana, the other being Napoli.
The England international is struggling for game time this season under Jurgen Klopp, and The Athletic added that Liverpool ‘will not stand in his way’ if he chooses to accept a more lucrative deal from elsewhere.
Pedro and Olivier Giroud don’t appear to be part of Frank Lampard’s youth revolution at Chelsea as they have just seven league appearances between them, while Milan have been linked with Giroud recently.
Finally, Mustafi has not played a single minute of Premier League football this term and also looks set to leave the Gunners if a suitable offer comes along.
