GdS: Milan want to fix two problem areas with double swoop – offers placed for duo

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan want to rebuild the right side of their defence with moves for two young players this summer, according to a report.

The Rossoneri’s two biggest problems this season in the back four have been struggling to find consistency at right-back and also having not found an undisputed partner for captain Alessio Romagnoli.

Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) though are reporting that two names have already been identified to reinforce the rearguard: Eduardo Quaresma of Sporting CP and Denzel Dumfries of PSV Eindhoven.

It will not be easy to get either player however, as Milan have already seen an initial offer for Quaresma rejected, that being a €5m bid plus the insertion of Diego Laxalt as a counterpart.

However, the discussion is not over, but what complicates the scenario is a renewal until 2025 that means the 18-year-old is likely to have a release clause of €45m soon.

Meanwhile, the management are also working on Dumfries. In this case, Milan are trying to strike up an exchange, proposing that Ricardo Rodriguez join them permanently. The first response was negative, but even in this case Milan does not intend to give up.
