The attacking midfielder position is one that continues to dominate the media headlines surrounding Milan, with Hakan Calhanoglu’s replacement having not yet arrived.
According to the latest from MilanNews, the choice of management will be made calmly as they evaluate every opportunity, but at the moment there is still no player in pole position because Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to know they economic conditions of each player on the target list.
In late August it is likely that the pressure will begin to increase with the teams that have players they need to try and offload, such as Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech who is one of the first choices because he can play both as an attacking midfielder and as a right winger. Chelsea demanded concrete offers in June, but in August they could possibly open to loans.
Rumours about Julian Brandt are confirmed, but it is a difficult operation because Borussia would like to keep the player, while other options like Nikola Vlasic of CSKA Moscow and Marcel Sabitzer of RB Leipzig must also be taken into consideration. Josip Ilicic is an opportunity for the right wing, and if he signed a new playmaker would still arrive.
