CorSport: New target emerges as Milan consider Sassuolo playmaker to replace Calhanoglu

By Oliver Fisher -

A new name has emerged as a potential replacement for Hakan Calhanoglu, whose contract is set to expire in just over a month.

This morning’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive) confirms that Milan are looking around for a suitable profile, should Calhanoglu not sign a new contract, and mentions that while Josip Ilicic of Atalanta is considered an option a new name has come forward.

The player in question is Sassuolo playmaker Filip Djuricic, who has a contract expiring with the Neroverdi in 2022 and after the farewell of head coach Roberto De Zerbi, he could decide to leave. He has not exactly had the best season despite starting with three goals in the first five games, scoring just twice after that, but he knows how to sacrifice with work rate and is certainly a system player.

We actually picked Djuricic out in the recent feature regarding potential Calhanoglu replacements. The 29-year-old has proven to be a crucial component to Sassuolo’s outstanding build-up play through his accurate passing and his constant movement across the pitch.

      He is gifted that an article is being written on him linking to Milan. Do you think he is capable of facing Bayern, City, Chelsea, PSG, MAdrid or Barca when they come with full force. This guy is gonna shit bricks in front of them.

    Who ever you are to pick must be physical, experience,hard working and have feeling of achieving many things unlike those on their way out.
