CM: Milan’s plans for January – stance on winger and striker outlined with two areas prioritised

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan management are already thinking ahead to the January transfer window, as was confirmed by CEO Ivan Gazidis, with two positions targeted.

According to Calciomercato.com, Milan are targeting a centre-back once the window reopens and the dream remains Nikola Milenkovic of Fiorentina, who at this moment appears to be expensive and difficult to sign.

The other profiles followed by the Rossoneri are Ozan Kabak of Schalke and Mohamed Simakan of Strasbourg, while Hellas Verona’s Matteo Lovato seems to be an idea for the future and not for the immediate. Milan are already working to find the right profile, from a technical and economic point of view.

Meanwhile, the arrival of a back-up to Theo Hernandez cannot be ruled out after Diego Laxalt’s departure to Celtic. Diogo Dalot can act on the left but the next few weeks will let Maldini and Massara know if they can count on not having a natural left-footed option.

A winger is not on the shopping list nor is a deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but for the latter the position is different: if there is an opportunity, a player will be signed who can grow behind Zlatan for the future.
