MN: 15 days for 3-4 new signings – from complicated playmaker pursuit to possible striker arrival

By Oliver Fisher -

There are 15 days left for the transfer market and there are still many teams that are trying to complete their squads, with AC Milan among them.

MilanNews are reporting that Milan are working on signing at least three and hopefully four more players to give Stefano Pioli some much-needed quality depth in each department. Two names in particular are close in right-back Alessandro Florenzi of Roma and central midfielder Yacine Adli of Bordeaux.

Regarding the former, Florenzi wants to join Milan and that is why there is so much optimism regarding the conclusion of the operation, but for Adli the management need to negotiate on the economic basis with Bordeaux.

As for exits, the possibility of a move to Cagliari for Tommaso Pobega is becoming more and more likely but it would be a dry loan. Offers are expected for Castillejo but at the moment there is nothing concrete, even from Getafe.

The playmaker pursuit has become difficult and it does not seem easy to be able to sign one that respects the club’s diktats, so much so that Pioli is studying and has already tried a 4-4-2 formation that does not include the presence of a 10. In case of tactical change, however, the need to purchase a third striker will increase in intensity.
