CM: Pioli asks Milan management to make four more signings – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has asked Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara for four more signings to complete his squad, a report claims.

Having already got deals for Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz over the line, Pioli is determined to secure at least two options in every position in his 4-2-3-1.

According to Calciomercato.com, in addition to the re-signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Pioli asked for nine reinforcements from the club this summer when he signed his new deal.

The market has so far given the confirmation of Ibrahimovic, Kjaer and Saelemaekers, plus Brahim and Tonali, but there are still four areas that need addressing.

Pioli has asked for a reinforcement in the full-back department, possibly on the right with the possibility that one of Conti or Calabria leaves.

In defence he wants another signing to join Romagnoli and Kjaer, but one of Duarte or Musacchio must leave first. Then, a new deputy to Gianluigi Donnarumma will have to arrive too.

Finally, Pioli wants another central midfielder. Tiemoué Bakayoko is the player on the radar, but currently there are difficulties regarding the operation.

Then, in the last days of the transfer market there could be opportunities suitable for Milan.
