AC Milan are looking to bring in a new deputy left-back in the summer as Fode Ballo-Toure has failed to impress the management. This time out, the Rossoneri will sign an Italian, a report claims.
Ballo-Toure joined the club for Monaco for around €4m but he has never really impressed on the pitch. This evening, he will play from start as Theo Hernandez has the flu and that has highlighted the weakness in the team.
According to Calciomercato.com, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working on signing a new deputy left-back. In fact, they are targeting a couple of Italians as that will be very beneficial for the Champions League squad list.
The two names on their list, as things stand, are Antonino Gallo (23, Lecce) and Emanuele Valeri (24, Cremonese). However, they are yet to fully convince Milan and that’s why the solution could be another.
Andrea Bozzolan, the 19-year-old Primavera star, has impressed under Ignazio Abate’s management and he could be promoted to the first team. That would be the so-called wildcard solution.
They don’t want one. They need one for squad numbers
i guess go for valeri since he will be free agent
Bozzolan is 19. Hes ready for a deputy role. Anyway we have about 5 rb and some of them can do a job on the left.
Give youth a chance!!
Pioli time is coming to an end and doesn’t matter who Massara buys
The new manager will give his in put
Another disgraceful Milan game the squad is not skilful enough to compete at this level that is why they lost to Inter, Fiorentina, Napoli, Sassuolo Lazio and so on
The season at the moment is over
Good bye Pioli
They bought all garbage from outside
They burn Romanioli, Gabia next
Calabria burn ready
What us next you F idiots
We had him – Kerkez – and gave him away for only 2M lol. Horrible.
Not surprised to see Parisi drop off the list.
I watched Atalanta v Empoli to keep an eye on Scalvini (who had nothing to do), Baldanzi, Ruggeri, Fazzini and Parisi.
It’s was more of the same from Parisi who I am not impressed by, at all.
As far as being a left back is concerned he takes up a position but that is about it.
He doesn’t play the position naturally, his positioning looks all wrong to me. The number of times his flank was wide open…so he could double team an opposition striker going for a header (when Parisi couldn’t impact that contest).
Zappacosta took him apart a few times.
Credit where it is due, his ball to set up the Empoli goal was good.
He’s 22 so he is not the finished product but I just don’t see it. His use of the ball is average, his pace is average his defense and positioning would be lucky to be average.
I don’t see scope for improvement to suggest he would ever start for a top club. It is not like he has the pace and physicality of Theo or Spinazzola.
