Repubblica: Botman, Renato Sanches, Faivre and Beto – Milan’s ideas for January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are not just thinking about signing a defender during the January window but they also have the idea of signing a midfielder and a forward, it is claimed.

This morning’s edition of La Repubblica (as cited by MilanNews) focuses on Milan’s market strategy and confirms that the priority for Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Massara is to reinforce the defence, and Sven Botman of Lille is a target but his asking price is €30m. Andreas Christensen of Chelsea is a more experiences and less expensive option.

Tiemoue Bakayoko’s struggles have also forced Milan to think of signing a midfielder with Lille’s Renato Sanches a potential option to come in and give support to Tonali and Krunic during AFCON.

Finally, in the attacking department, in addition to the familiar target of Romain Faivre, the management are keen on Udinese striker Beto who is on loan with an obligation to buy from Portimonese.

  1. If we could get a defender and Faiver + renew or offload Kessie and bring Sanchez in that case, it would be a big improvement. Whoever thinks Kessie can really play AMC shouldn’t even give their opinion.

    1. Agreed and well said. Would add Kamara as well instead of/mor if we cannot get Sanches (price). But Yes, Faivre, Kamara, Sanches, Botman – are exactly the kinds of players we need and should be targeting in January if we truly want to compete for the Scudetto this season…

  2. Botman and faivre is what we should certainly be buying in January, but with a striker possible we should go for Arthur Cabral from Basel worth around 15 to 20 million or a cheaper player like Beto

    1. What can Faivre bring?? Everything we lack at that position and more lol. RW and can also play CAM, can score with both feet, excellent vision and can break the lines. A true difference maker like Leao on the left side. Leao and Faivre as your LW/RW and eventually a young striker between them (Vlahovic) and Adil (CAM) and we would have a devastating attack for many years to come…
