CM: Milan could rekindle interest in Premier League midfielder as Bennacer deputy is wanted

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are likely to reignite their interest in Fulham’s André-Frank Zambo Anguissa, according to a report.

The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Anguissa during the last summer transfer window when it became apparently that a deal to bring Tiemoue Bakayoko back had hit the rocks, though in the end a new midfielder did not arrive after Sandro Tonali.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milan had the chance to sign the Cameroon international on a low-cost deal last summer and his agent even held talks with the Rossoneri management, but they decided not to sink the blow.

However, Paolo Maldini and co. are now on the lookout for a new back-up to Ismael Bennacer – who has struggled with injuries this season – as when he is out Milan ‘lose an extraordinary ball retriever’ who is ‘capable of transforming defensive action into offensive’,

Anguissa has been identified as one of the ‘best possible solutions’ to their current problem, and in the summer something could finally materialise.
