AC Milan are on the lookout for a new midfielder ahead of the summer transfer window and the solution could arrive from Serie A, a report claims.
Milan’s midfield department has become weaker from last season in the eyes of many with Ismael Bennacer and Sandro Tonali remaining the two starters for the most part but with Rade Krunic, Tommaso Pobega and even Tiemoue Bakayoko being used as third choice, compared to last season when Franck Kessie was part of the rotation.
According to today’s edition of Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), the name of Lazar Samardzic is back in fashion for the Rossoneri management. He has already been linked with Milan in the past, and at the moment the Serbia international has a price tag of about €20m.
The 21-year-old has scored four goals in 25 league games for Udinese this season, with the Friulians having bought him from RB Leipzig in 2021. He started as a playmaker but can also function as a box-to-box midfielder.
