Brahim’s struggles post-Covid force Maldini to reflect – Faivre and Ziyech among names considered

By Oliver Fisher -

Brahim Diaz’s form since he returned from Covid-19 has not been good and AC Milan might look for solutions on the market, a report claims. recalls how Brahim Diaz was one of the key components of the Rossoneri’s excellent start to the season as he racked up 4 goals and 2 assists in the opening 9 fixtures games, but now he is experiencing a difficult period as he has 0 goals and 2 assists in the last 9 games.

It may be that solutions are needed on the market for the Rossoneri given that at the moment the alternatives are Rade Krunic and Junior Messias, both of whom have been playing on the left wing and right wing respectively over the past few games.

To continue fighting for the Scudetto, Paolo Maldini could decide to give a new attacking midfielder to Stefano Pioli. Romain Faivre of Brest is mentioned as an option, as is Hakim Ziyech of Chelsea but his €5m net per season salary is an obstacle.

There are other options too such as Real Madrid duo Isco and Marco Asensio who also have high costs though with the latter having admirers in England, while Lille’s Jonathan Ikone is listed despite reports he is close to joining Fiorentina.

  1. Sign the French playmaker romain faivre who is a great solution to Diaz and Alexis playing bad and if we recall Aldi put him in AM and faivre RW

  2. I’ve watched faivres recent games, not so special considering his playing for a weak team. We need more influential player with better physical presence and creativity. Asensio, sbotzolai, adli, leandro paredes, Rafinha. Heck malfini and masara knows best

  3. Faivre is not Champions League material, Brest is a weak team. Guy is not free and is soon 24.

    Not to mention disloyal to his team – same trait Dembele showed in Borussia.

    Now even Leao disappoints as winger. We have excellent attacking fullback in Theo and versatile Kalulu – get replacement for Fodo Toure and we would be set on wings.

    No point for me to have to spend on 2 extra positions if we could simply switch tactics to how our players prefer to play.

    I think Capello (or some other good old coach) recently said that good coaches adjust system to players and bad ones players to system.
