MN: Milan up to six summer recruits but five more signings are eyed – the positions

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still targeting new signings in four other positions despite a flurry of recent activity, according to a report.

MilanNews writes how after the arrivals of Mike Maignan, Fikayo Tomori, Sandro Tonali, Fode Ballo-Touré, Brahim Diaz and Olivier Giroud, the management are still planning for more additions because the squad is not considered complete at the moment.

An alternative right-back to Davide Calabria is sought, a central midfielder is wanted given Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer’s African Cup of Nations commitments, a right winger is desired and finally a playmaker to replace Hakan Calhanoglu.

In addition, there could also be a last piece: a young striker who can offer more physical guarantees than Ibrahimovic and Giroud, with the profiles of Kaio Jorge (Santos) and Janis Antiste (Toulouse) very popular with Maldini and Massara.

Pioli knows that the two directors will do everything to complete the squad, with preseason now in full swing and just over a month until the start of the season.

    Let Conti stay at the club, Milan have bought him for €24m and selling him for just €7m doesn’t make sense. We always sell players at extremely low prices. I know we are not a five-star club at the moment but I always wonder why Dortmund and Leipzig never suffers like this?

      we don’t want to be a selling club like Dortmund or Leipzig, so let’s get that out of the way

      so far, other than Mike and (potentially) Giroud, our signings have been either trash of implicit, so we should stop counting our chickens as a measure of success

      if all the future signings are just cheap back-ups, I couldn’t care less how many we’re getting – there is no difference whether you have 1,2 or 3 Samus or Krunices at the club

    Exactly, you’ve pointed out well. It’s actually better to keep current backup players for stability and not bringing another less proven players. ‘Stability’ is an unfamiliar concept to Milan, they have never gone for it in previous decade. Now Milan have adopted Dortmund’s model and once they claim the scudetto, they should go for stability and strengthening the team further for further sporting and economic results.
