There are a number of names on AC Milan’s wish list of targets to reinforce the four or five areas they are determined to strengthen, a report claims.
According to MilanNews, the Rossoneri management are looking to sign the following before the window shuts: a deputy right-back, a fourth choice central midfielder, a new right winger, an attacking midfielder and a young third-choice striker.
Starting with the role of deputy Calabria, the number one target is Diogo Dalot of Manchester United, and the alternative target if the return of the Portugal international does not materialise is Alvaro Odriozola of Real Madrid.
For the right wing spot, at the moment the hottest name is that of Josip Ilicic who looks set to leave Atalanta, while an enquiry has also been made for Mohamed Daramy of FC Copenhagen.
For the position attacking midfielder there are a range of names such as Marcel Sabitzer of RB Leipzig, Nikola Vlasic of CSKA Moscow and the dream of Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea. Another profile could be Isco, but the salary of the Spaniard is very high.
The names followed by Milan for the midfield are French-speaking, as in addition to Boubacar Kamara of Marseille, the management are also considering a possible return of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea.
For the centre-forward role however, there are more hypotheses than concrete names. Janis Antiste from Toulouse is one name, while an enquiry was made over Randal Kolo Muani of Nantes.
