MN: Milan eye Saelemaekers-esque signing for the midfield – the situation

By Isak Möller -

In addition to the defence, Milan could reinforce the midfield next month as they look to continue their good run of form. However, they will have to be smart on the market, operating with a relatively low budget. 

Per MilanNews.it, despite reports linking the Rossoneri with Boubakary Soumare, they are unlikely to make another €20-30m midfield signing after buying Sandro Tonali. With him, as well as Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer, they are covered as far as starters go.

Therefore, they will most likely try to find another Alexis Saelemaekers profile, a young and a relatively unknown player at a low price. This has been a key for Milan in their project, which is starting to show great results.

The ball is in the scouting department’s court, in other words, and it would certainly be impressive if they can find another bargain. This isn’t easy, especially today, as scouting is more fierce than ever.
