Stefano Pioli’s friends have reportedly revealed the signings that the AC Milan head coach is expected to welcome during the summer window.
La Gazzetta dello Sport managed to speak to Pioli while on his well-earned vacation and they also managed to chat with some of his more outspoken friends and asked them if they have heard anything from Pioli regarding the additions the management are expecting to make.
The paper claims that Pioli confirmed to them in confidence that there could be as many as four more additions. “The coach told us that they take him a defender, a midfielder, a 7 and a 10. Or maybe a 10 that also plays 7,” they said (via SempreMilan.it).
There are a number of different transfer targets that have been mentioned for each role including Sven Botman and Gleison Bremer for the defence, Renato Sanches for the midfield and forwards such as Charles De Ketelaere, Noa Lang and Nicolo Zaniolo. Of course, it is presumed that Divock Origi’s arrival is already presumed as part of this given his medical is imminent.
