CM: Milan identify three key areas to strengthen in January window

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to spend in the January window to strengthen in three key areas, according to a report.

The Rossoneri have endured a turbulent start to the season after a summer in Elliott Management provided the budget for six signings to arrive.

Marco Giampaolo was brought in as head coach but lasted just 111 days, and Stefano Pioli replaced him last week.

Milan currently sit in the bottom half of the table with just 10 points amassed from the opening 10 games, and according to the club’s leadership are aware that there are certain positions which need investment.

Their report claims that there will be no crazy spending from Elliott in January due to budgetary reasons.

However, Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban are looking to bring in a new right-back, a mezz’ala and a quality winger, the report claims.

Tottenham’s Serge Aurier, Everton’s Djibril Sidibe and Lille’s Mehmet Zeki Celik are three names being considered to replace the struggling Andrea Conti according to recent reports.

Meanwhile, we recently confirmed that Elliott have made around €30-40m available for the winter window to help bring in some experience.
