MN: Pioli hoping to welcome another midfielder before the new season – two targets identified

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is hoping to welcome another midfielder before the season starts, according to a report.

MilanNews writes that Pioli already has a trio of Franck Kessiè, Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer to count on, but to complete the department another player is needed to keep with the theme of having two quality players for each position in the 4-2-3-1 system.

The departure of Soualiho Meitè leaves a hole to be filled as the fourth choice midfielder and the management are at work to identify the right profile. Two names are mentioned in the report: Tiemoue Bakayoko of Chelsea and Boubacar Kamara of Marseille. The characteristic that unites the two, in particular, is physicality, an important sign that Pioli needs to have two athletically gifted midfielders like Kessiè.

Bakayoko seems to be out of Chelsea’s plans and has a contract expiring in 2022, while Marseille are facing the same contract dilemma with Kamara.

  1. OM needs to sell to reduce costs. If we are lucky we could sign him at the end of the window. Let’s hope Chelsea will decide not to invest in him
