AC Milan are in search of reinforcements for the midfield and they have identified a Roma midfielder as a potential target, a report claims.
Milan are likely going to have to restock the middle of the park given that Franck Kessie will leave on a free transfer while there is intense speculation that Tiemoue Bakayoko’s two-year loan from Chelsea could be cut short by a year.
According to what is being reported by Il Corriere della Sera (via SempreMilan.it), Milan have set their sights on Bryan Cristante, a midfielder who actually came through the Rossoneri youth sector and is currently playing at Roma.
However, the capital club have no intention of selling him but on the contrary they seem ready to extend his contract, which is currently expiring in 2024.
For Milan, the purchase of the 27-year-old would be very useful for the duel purpose of bolstering the department with a player who knows the league but also because he would count towards being an academy graduate for the UEFA squad list regulations.
