AC Milan struggled defensively in the game against Inter and while that was also because of two injuries, the depth is somewhat lacking in that department. Therefore, there could be some movement in January.
The Rossoneri conceded five goals in the big derby and thus didn’t stand a chance, even if Rafael Leao brought some hope with his 2-1 goal. Clearly, the absence of both Pierre Kalulu and Fikayo Tomori (the Scudetto pairing) hurt Stefano Pioli’s men.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Milan management decided to focus on the midfield and attack this summer mercato and could remedy their mistake in January. In fact, they could look to make one or two reinforcements for the defence.
Fode Ballo-Toure left on deadline day and Mattia Caldara is still in the squad, meaning it was hard for the Rossoneri management to do much in defence this summer. Marco Pellegrino did arrive but he replaced Matteo Gbbia, who left for Villarreal quite early in the summer.
In short, now there is some room for the Rossoneri management to act and they will certainly look for opportunities.
