AC Milan will bolster the midfield with the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko but they want a final signing to complete the attack, a report claims.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Stefano Pioli is still waiting for a flexible attacking midfielder who can alternate with Brahim Diaz but who also knows how to play as a winger. This is where the candidacy of Romain Faivre has emerged, and the 23-year-old from Brest seems to be the chosen target.
He brings quality, work rate and flexibility, meaning the Frenchman is an Elliott-like profile given the investment needed to sign him and the low wages he would likely receive. It seems that Faivre has ousted the ‘competition’ of Jesus Corona from Porto, who was also being eyed.
The Mexican has experience on his side, but the dialogue with Porto has stalled and now Milan are pushing ahead with Faivre, having made an offer worth €10m plus bonuses on the plate and hopes to reach an agreement with the Ligue 1 club in the next few hours. Contacts between the parties are increasingly intense.
