CM: Why Milan are convinced that Botman is the perfect investment

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have decided to put all their chips on signing Sven Botman from Lille ahead of the 2022-23 season, according to a report. report how the negotiation over Botman began in January and is moving towards closing. The Rossoneri have studied the characteristics of the Dutch defender for a long time and consider his skill set to be perfect for Stefano Pioli’s style and system.

The management are on the lookout for a young left-sided defender who can partner Fikayo Tomori for the long term, and they like Botman because of that, plus the fact that he is strong in the air and more than competent in the build-up phase too.

In short, he is the perfect identikit given what Milan need and he also corresponds to the vision of owners Elliott Management of wanting to sign young players who will develop into the core of the future moving forward.

  1. My worries are about his positional sense. He’s big and strong and good in the air which is something Fik isn’t so it’s a good complement. But the couple games I’ve seen of his I haven’t seen him be very disciplined or smart positionally which I don’t like.

    1. Fik has the highest recorded jump in serie a, beating Cristiano Ronaldo’s record, he is just fine in the air, but I get what your saying an she would compliment Fik

  2. This guy doesn’t convince me, he is 21 though, there is room for improvement but Milan should expect an immediate impact from him, he will need time just like tonali did

  3. Botman are good. But not better than what we have already!
    Why we must spend money on him, and let Romagnoli leave for free!?
    Club offer 3.5m basic wage to Botman, but wanna our Capitan go to 2.5m from 5.5m!!!
    Extend with Romagnoli, and spend on worldclass AM and RW!
