MN: Midtjylland and Strasbourg midfielders on Milan’s list of targets

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have three names on their list as they continue to search for a new central midfielder amid worries over Sandro Tonali’s injury, according to a report.

According to MilanNews, Tonali sustained an issue with his left thigh flexor that he felt pull at the beginning of the second half of the friendly match against Vicenza but compared to 48 hours ago, the Italian did not feel pain and there is hope that it could be a simple over-stretching rather than a tear or anything more serious.

Whether he can be there against Udinese on Saturday in front of over 70,000 at San Siro to begin the new campaign is not yet known but even having him for the following weekend against Atalanta would be positive.

Now, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are at work to try and secure a midfielder reinforcement, and there are two names that stand out above all currently. The first is Raphael Onyedika (21) of FC Midtjylland and the second is Ibrahima Sissoko (24) of Strasbourg.

The report adds that the track leading to Davide Frattesi should not be definitively abandoned yet either, even if it is ‘complex on an economic level’.

  1. According to Pietro Mazzara, who usually is relatively well-informed, the first name on the list is Onyedika. He is described as a defensive midfielder who is very calm on the ball, and never injured. Anyone who has seen him play?

  2. Seen some youtube vids of Raphael Onyedika. Not a bad replacement for Kessie ito defensive abilities. Still needs to develop offensively but there’s something to work with.

  3. This is where we have fallen to, left kamara to go for free, left Sanchez for 15m , we want to save every 1m we have but we will sl3nt all our budget on a 35m Tall Suso…now we are going for strasbourg and midtylland players who will not care about us giving them our precious 1ms, let’s also go to Padova and Vicenza for midfeilders or probably go on the street and pick people that will play for free……. I pity Maldini, this is embarrassing And disgraceful, scudetto holders indeed, I pray this seasoñ doesn’t surprise us

  4. No need to buy new CM, Slide Saelemaekers to center midfield, he is good in defend, but lack crossing and cut inside abillity like a winger, he can be box to box midfield like tonali, and buy Ziyech for true winger
