MN: The January window is almost upon us – Milan’s strategy explained and the list of targets

By Oliver Fisher -

On January 4 the winter transfer market session will open, and the AC Milan management have a plan in terms of the things they want to achieve.

As MilanNews reports, it is difficult to imagine that there will be any large investments as the economic damage caused by COVID has been enormous and even the world of football is not exempt from the various difficulties that ensue.

Milan will also have to operate under the eye of Financial Fair Play too, but they are still ready to try and improve the squad with targeted investments.

The Rossoneri are looking for a new centre-back to support Kjaer, Romagnoli and Gabbia (with Duarte and Musacchio out of the project) and the hottest name is that of Mohamed Simakan of Strasbourg.

In the midfield, Kessie, Bennacer and Tonali all have their places locked down while Rade Krunic – although not on the market – does not go well with Mr. Pioli’s 4-2-3-1, at least in the role of the double pivot.

A fourth central midfielder to alternate with the three mentioned above would be ideal, and the names are Boubakary Soumare of Lille, Koné from Toulouse and Anguissa from Fulham.

In terms of the attacking department it is still the case that Lorenzo Colombo is the only natural number nine who can replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The club has full confidence in Leao and Rebic, but if the right opportunity arises to add to the squad then they will be ready.
