CM: Milan not looking for a Kessie copy – the identikit and the current targets

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are looking for a new midfielder, but they will not be going for a copy of Franck Kessie.

According to, Milan know that directly replacing Kessie is impossible, due to the characteristics of the Ivorian and how he engaged in the mechanisms of the team, but Milan have clear ideas about the profile they want.

Explosiveness and tactical intelligence are the characteristics requested by Pioli, and then they must be a profile who fits in line with the ideas of the mercato both in terms of the project and the budgetary freedom.

Jean Onana of Bordeaux is a player that Geoffrey Moncada has been following for months and he fits perfectly with his ball carrying and his physicality, but there is still no negotiation set and this also leaves room for alternatives.

Adrien Tameze of Hellas Verona is another welcome profile also because he knows the league well already but his asking price is high. More affordable from a price point of view is Raphael Onyedika of FC Midtyjlland.

Davide Frattesi is a more complicated option because Sassuolo are an expensive club to buy from and after having sold Gianluca Scamacca (with Giacomo Raspadori potentially to follow), selling another piece would be a bold choice. Seko Fofana of RC Lens is not considered to be a frontrunner despite the clear opening of the RC Lens player.
