Mediaset: Milan looking at Isaksen, Reijnders and Dia to fill three gaps in squad

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are working on the signing of a right winger, a midfielder and a centre-forward but they are having to be fluid in their pursuits.

As Claudio Raimondi reports for SportMediaset (via MilanNews) this afternoon, Samuel Chukwueze is fading as an idea because there is currently a €10m distance between what Milan want to pay and what Villarreal want.

That is why Gustav Isaksen is heating up as a potential alternative option, with the two clubs in negotiations. The Danish side have asked Milan if they would let the 22-year-old stay until the Conference League play-offs.

The main target for the midfield is still Tijjani Reijnders, a player who AZ Alkmaar values  at €25m. The Rossoneri have gone up to €22m with their latest offer, but the turning point could come from the Dutch midfielder.

Reijnders really wants the move, and seems to be willing to give up a little bit of his €2m net per season as verbally agreed in his four-year contract to allow Milan to further raise its offer.

In the search for a striker, Alvaro Morata and Mehdi Taremi are complicated options while Gianluca Scamacca’s candidacy remains alive.

Boulaye Dia is one to watch, and until July 20 the Senegal international can be signed by paying the release clause of €25m, but after that date it will be necessary to negotiate.

  1. Not a bad combination. I could live with these options. Throw in some of the deadwood for Dia to bring the price down. Thereafter get a Deputy for Theo, Ballo is beyond repair. And dive in for Kamada if he is still available. Hope there is still a non EU slot available?

  2. Let’s get these three. And also Nicolas Dominguez of Bologna. All by the close of this week then the team is set to focus on Preseason.

  3. I think Reinjders is almost a done deal and he will be better than Tonali. Dia for 25 is a steal and must be done this/next week.

  4. If we could get Reijnders and Gravenbach and then get a low cost DM option like Ricci (for Messias….great shout by Oli on the podcast) or Domingez then with RLC and Bennacer, Adli and Pobega i think the midfield is greatly improved

    RW has to be Chukwueze and keep Saelemaekers as back up. I think he’s a decent player, and a worthy backup, we also have Pulisic to play there.

    I’d swap CDK for Scamacca, i understand west ham have shown interest.

    Serie A should be our main objective too.
