AC Milan’s next fixture is against Bologna, and the clash could serve as the perfect opportunity for the Rossoneri to take a closer look at some of their targets.
Milan have been consistently linked with three individuals who are currently with the Rossoblu. Firstly Thiago Motta, the Italian coach has been widely rumoured to be a favoured candidate to succeed Stefano Pioli.
Then there is Lewis Ferguson and Joshua Zirkzee, who are both no stranger to links to a move to Milano. Both have seen an astronomical rise recently, under Motta, and the game is being seen as a chance to kill multiple birds with one stone.
Not only does it give a chance for the Diavolo to watch the trio’s reaction to the San Siro atmosphere, but also their performance, and whilst it is hoped none of them come away from the game happy, it is hoped they will show their abilities.
Daniele Longo reported on CalcioMercato.com that a link could emerge between Milan and Bologna, given the interest in the trio.
On Thiago Motta…
“A possible link could develop next summer between AC Milan and Bologna. For several weeks now, AC Milan have been closely following the growth of Thiago Motta, who is an influential candidate in view of a possible change of bench next season. Therefore, he could take Stefano Pioli’s place. He likes him a lot and on Saturday there is a great opportunity at the San Siro to see what are the tactical ideas and also the management of the match by the red and blue coach.”
On Joshua Zirkzee…
“It is not only the Italian-Brazilian coach that is the reason for the Rossoneri management’s interest, who for once will be busy not only watching their players, but also and above all their opponents. We have told you about Zirkzee as one of the favourite players among the most influential candidates to become the new number nine next season. Moncada likes him very much.”
On Lewis Ferguson…
“Ferguson is also very much liked. The Scottish midfielder is growing a lot, especially this season, and has a valuation of around 15 million euros. Milan have not yet started any negotiations for this player, but from Saturday’s test they will probably understand if they are really serious about this boy or turn to other targets for the midfield.”
