AC Milan are looking to reinforce the attacking trio with one player that can play in the centre and to the right, which is what Stefano Pioli has requested. Three top players have been identified, a report claims.
According to today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport (via MilanNews), the players in question are Marcos Asensio, Charles De Ketelaere and Hakim Ziyech. The situation for each of them is very different, which Milan must take into account.
Asensio has one year left on his contract and while Real Madrid are asking for €30m now, their demands could be lowered as the summer goes on. Ziyech, meanwhile, is not in Chelsea’s plans and he could leave on a loan formula, though his salary is an issue (€6.5m per year).
Finally, De Ketelaere is Club Brugge’s biggest talent and they won’t let him go for anything less than €30m. His salary, however, would certainly not be a problem for Milan as he currently earns very little compared to the other two targets. These are the factors Maldini and Massara must take into account, in other words.
