Longo: Milan target Italian signings to bolster squad around primary targets

By Mitchell Wilks -

Milan will turn towards recruiting Italian players to bolster the squad after their primary targets are secured this summer, a new report reads.

The Rossoneri have long been linked with the likes of Lille’s Sven Botman and Renato Sanches, as well as Liverpool’s Divock Origi, as part of their summer plans.

Daniele Longo reports that with deals for Botman and Origi close, and Sanches feeling attainable, the Rossoneri will then consider Italian signings to bolster their homegrown list.

With reform to the current homegrown/Italian players quota expected, Milan are mindful that they need to increase the number within their squad, especially if signing several players from outside of Italy.

Milan look set to lose Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli in summer, while the likes of Daniel Maldini and Matteo Gabbia could leave on loan.

They have been linked with Domenico Berardi, who would fit the bill as an Italian international.
