AC Milan are looking ahead to the January transfer window knowing there are gaps in the squad to be filled, with one of the most prevalent ones being the centre-forward position.
According to Calciomercato.com, Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio are at work to sign a new central defender and a new No.9 to act as Olivier Giroud’s deputy. This is why the scouting team are hard at work and will also be busy with an important mission over the weekend.
Indeed, Milan’s scouts and collaborators will in fact be present in various stadiums in Ligue 1 over the course of the weekend and, in particular, they will be present at the Luis II stadium in Monte Carlo to watch Monaco versus Montpellier.
The number one target, the first name on the list, is of Akor Adams. The Nigerian forward has scored seven league goals for Montpellier and the Rossoneri have already moved for him through intermediaries. The French club have set an asking price of €15m maximum, which is within reason.
The former Monaco man Benoit Badiashile (who moved to Chelsea from them for €40m) is certainly one of the names being considered to strengthen the defence, but more for June than for January
