GdS: Survival fight sees Bordeaux resist Milan’s attempts to recruit midfielder in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking at potential reinforcements for the January transfer window including the potential of ending Yacine Adli’s loan early, a report claims.

Milan signed Adli on a permanent deal over the summer from Bordeaux but as part of the operation it was agreed that he would be loaned back to them for the rest of the season. However, Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer’s departures for the African Cup of Nations plus the general struggle for depth in the playmaker role has seemingly changed the Rossoneri’s generous stance.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes that Milan are carefully evaluating the possibility of bringing forward the arrival of Adli. However, it will not be straightforward because Bordeaux are fighting for survival in Ligue 1 after a poor start to the season.

This struggle means that they do not seem willing to let him leave six months earlier and therefore they have put up a wall to the possibility, while there is no recall clause as part of the loan.
