As Hakan Calhanoglu has officially signed for Inter, Milan will need to bring in a replacement ahead of next season. It seems they aren’t in a huge rush, though, mainly because it could help their strategy.
The Rossoneri will obviously have to bring in a player of high calibre and this usually means the negotiation won’t be easy. Therefore, waiting until the end of the summer could actually help them, as opportunities could open up.
During tonight’s program on Sky Italia, Gianluca Di Marzio spoke about Milan’s options when it comes to replacing Calhanoglu, as cited by MilanNews. He made it very clear that the club management isn’t in a rush to get this done.
“There is no rush, the transfer market isn’t over yet. Ziyech is among the first names on the wish list of attacking midfielder. With Chelsea, the negotiations are very broad, they could involve other players and not just Ziyech and Giroud,” he stated.
In addition to a Calhanoglu replacement, Milan are also expected to extend the loan of Brahim Diaz, most likely with an option to buy included as well. In other words, they should be covered in this position.
