CorSport: Moncada working on two deals to strengthen Milan’s core – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

While waiting for the new head coach to be appointed – which we can now presume to be Paulo Fonseca – Geoffrey Moncada is reportedly at work to strengthen the squad.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan have had new contacts for Joshua Zirkzee in the last few hours. The management have been after the Bologna striker for months, but in addition to the €40m clause the obstacle of commissions must be overcome.

However, it cannot be ruled out that Milan might try to buy another striker with different characteristics. The Dutchman is seen by Fonseca as more of a second striker rather than a traditional centre-forward as Olivier Giroud has been in the last three years.

For the Portuguese coach, it may be necessary to sign an option with different characteristics in addition to Zirkzee, otherwise the attack might risk being too one-dimensional given Noah Okafor and Luka Jovic also prefer to play off someone.

Milan will also have to strengthen the midfield and could focus on Youssouf Fofana from Monaco, who will certainly leave Monaco in the summer. The French national team midfielder has had contact with Milan through his entourage.

Now, Moncada is working on the Monaco front to try secure a midfielder who would sit in front of the defence and ideally offer better balance in transition.

  1. We don’t need this type of players we need straight DM someone like amrabat and straight CF someone like Gyokeres

    1. Amrabat is overrated and Gyökeres is wayyy to expensive, but yeah I would like a more positional CDM, someone like Florentino Luís would be good

  2. Two strikers in addition to Okafor & Jovic, I don’t see this as a good idea.

    As far as I’m concerned, our forwards are close to perfect in regard to the number of goals we scored in the concluded season.

    Even if we don’t get a replacement for giroud and focus on our defense, the better for us.

    My opinion

  3. It doesn’t count until it is official!

    Fofana is going to Euro If I am not mistaken.

    If he shines, he will be in auction and there are lots of desperate circus clubs like Man UTD or Arsenal they are chasing after any name becomes hot in market
