It is becoming more and more likely that AC Milan will be adding Tijjani Reijnders to the squad in the coming weeks and there is a chance he will give Stefano Pioli something that Sandro Tonali could not.
As has been hypothesised by Calciomercato.com, Reijnders is much more of an all-round midfielder than Tonali, who was sold earlier in the week to Newcastle.
The Dutchman has agreed on terms with Milan already and now the club are in talks with AZ Alkmaar to get the deal over the line so that he can join Ruben Loftus-Cheek as a new midfielder at Milan.
A Europa Conference League semi-final showed the functionality of Reijnders as he ranked top in the match for scoring chances created, key passes, and balls recovered. It shows he can aid the attack whilst also breaking up the opposition attacks, whilst Tonali was more focused on his running and tackling.
