MN: Versatility, dynamism and tactical intelligence – why Milan are fascinated by Faivre

By Oliver Fisher -

The latest and hottest name surrounding AC Milan’s transfer market is certainly Romain Faivre of Brest, as the club continue to look for a playmaker.

MilanNews writes how directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to increase the quality of the attacking department after the departure of Hakan Calhanoglu, something which has not yet been covered numerically despite Brahim Diaz’s return, and that is why they have opened talks over Faivre.

Faivre came through the youth sector of Tours and in 2017 he moved to Monaco, becoming part of their B-team. The following season he made four senior appearances totalling 341 minutes, but he decided to move to Brest in search of more consistent playing time. With his new club he racked up 37 appearances in his first season (36 in Ligue 1 and 1 in Coupe de la Ligue), scoring 6 goals and 5 assists. This season, he has 2 assists in 3 games and dazzled against PSG.

Why do Milan want him? Well, the management are looking for a man who can create numerical superiority with quality on the ball. He has improved his main characteristics, such as dribbling and ball control, building on his excellent attacking skills and tactical intelligence.

Not only that, but he can play in multiple roles too such as central midfield, playmaker but also as a winger and even deeper if needed.

  1. This guy is more functional for Milan compared to Corona or Adli, but still it’s a big risk Milan are taking here. Going into a full season with two young, unproven players (Diaz and Faivre) in the most important position of our 4-2-3-1 formation. This could easily backfire and ruins our whole season.

    Now I didn’t like or rate Hakan that much, but he was instrumental in some parts and matches of the season for us.

    Meanwhile, our team’s shooting ability from distance and free-kick delivery effectiveness is greatly reduced this term, since they mainly came from Hakan last season.

    Big risk by management.

  2. Waaaay better choice than Corona, Adli, or Messias. Still I’d prefer Zaccagni for value and picking up a top class player like Berardi but definitely Faivre over the recent names we’re linked with.
