CorSport: Sassuolo playmaker emerges as a target to replace Calhanoglu – three other names listed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are evaluating several solutions in terms of names who could potentially replace Hakan Calhanoglu, a report claims.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), Calhanoglu is among the players who could leave Milan in the summer and the management are examining names who could replace him given that Maldini and Massara have already shown a willingness not to be caught unprepared as with the Gianluigi Donnarumma situation.

The Turkish attacking midfielder is far from an agreement for the renewal with his contract set to expire and this has led the Rossoneri to evaluate other profiles. In addition to the names of Josip Ilicic of Atalanta, Papu Gomez of Sevilla and Rodrigo De Paul of Udinese, the management are also evaluating Filip Djuricic’s profile from Sassuolo.

Djuricic amassed five goals and four assists for Sassuolo in the league this season, having registered five goals and five assists the season prior for the Neroverdi.

  1. Really…. awful choice, will not progress the team, I dislike lateral moves. Just try for Castrovilli. Talented player, had an average-below average season so would be a good time to land him in case his price skyrockets after next year if he has a better season. Plus he’s a milanista and IMO I want players who want to be here these days after the Gigio debacle.

    Sign Belotti and Castrovilli (maybe De Paul but hesitant due to Raiola) then sign a midfielder like Schouten or Lokonga. If we keep Romagnoli defense is set. If not then go for a youngter like Lovato to develop. Renew Dalot loan witb cheaper option, same with Diaz. Then look at one more attacking top signing like Berardi, Ikone, or Depay and mercato e finito!

    1. Also wise to consider bringing back Pessina and signing Ilicic on the cheap. Then bring back Pobega if more depth is needed or can loan out if unnecessary.
