By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are expected to be busy in the last two weeks of the transfer window with a number of transfer operations still to be completed, a report claims. have taken stock of the Milan transfer market, starting by confirmed that Franck Kessie’s injury has accelerated the search for a reinforcement in the middle of the field. Yacine Adli – who started on the bench yesterday in the match against Marseille – is getting closer and closer as an agreement with Bordeaux has been reached at €10m.

The Frenchman is expected in Milan this week to complete his move and it will then be necessary to work on the right side, on the attack and on sales. Alessandro Florenzi of Roma is the hottest name to be the new back-up right-back, with Tiago Pinto (Roma director) having returned to Italy thus allowing negotiations to resume.

Those are the two closest operations at present, and it is expected that a playmaker will arrive too. Talks have been resumed over Nikola Vlasic, while other targets like Hakim Ziyech and Josip Ilicic will be difficult to sign.
