GdS: Loftus-Cheek, Kamada, Openda and more – Milan’s plan to improve the squad

By Oliver Fisher -

Now that the 2022-23 season has officially drawn to a close, a meeting is scheduled between Gerry Cardinale, Paolo Maldini and the Ricky Massara to discuss the plans for the summer window.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) explains that the transfer budget available to the Rossoneri directors will come from what was earned byqualifying for the Champions League, plus the proceeds from any sales.

Two signings have already been made: Marco Sportiello will arrive on a free transfer as the deputy to Mike Maignan, while Daichi Kamada’s arrival – also on a free – from Eintracht Frankfurt is practically closed with only bureaucratic issues to resolve.

Then the management will move for a midfielder given Ismael Bennacer’s injury. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is the No.1 target and he is valued at €20m by Chelsea, a figure that the Diavolo want to try and reduce.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic retiring and doubts about both Ante Rebic and Divock Origi, two strikers might be needed. The main name in terms of an investment on a young profile is Lois Openda of RC Lens, but stiff competition is driving up the price.

However, his eventual arrival would not exclude that of Marko Arnautovic from Bologna, who could arrive as an experienced option to replace Zlatan.

  1. Loftus-Cheek is not an upgrade to our midfield we already have enough clueless and less dynamic midfielders already.. We need an experienced holding midfield with good vision and can control the tempo of the games.

    1. I agree with No Cheek
      ACM should get Ogundon from City the Arsenal Striker on loan at Remis and Ndicka as extra CB

  2. We need to sell something.

    So many players we have with very low impact: Ballo Toure, Adli, Origi and Rebic.

    Than we have Florenzi and Messias who are not youngsters, and on right wing we need better finisher. So there is at least six players, who can be sold for at least 35 million in total and bring some youngsters for them.

    1. only if he’s coming for free cos he left for free. and mind you Milan don’t have the luck of 2nd spell, the likes of shevchenko, BALOTELLI 2nd spell was awful in exception of Ibrahimovic, kaka

  3. Everyone is focusing on striker, rw and midfielder. But equally important should be quality lw who can be backup to Leao.
    I hope management doesnt forget about that.

  4. Mauro Icardi, and beradi, Reis Nelson, Noa lang as leo’s backup, SMS, Roberto Famino and Ikay Gundogan on a free transfer plus left back.
