MN: Why Milan and Stefano Pioli see Yacine Adli as the ideal midfield reinforcement

By Oliver Fisher -

Thanks to the scouting reports received and what Stefano Pioli has requested, AC Milan believe Yacine Adli could be the perfect midfield reinforcement.

According to MilanNews, the Rossoneri management see Adli as having characteristics more similar to Bennacer than to Kessie, and they therefore see Adli as the deputy to the Algerian while Sandro Tonali is the deputy to Kessie. The requests of the French club are not low and the competition is intense, but Milan will try and sign him.

He is seen as a versatile midfielder because of his ability to be decisive both in the non-possession phase – using his physique to battle for possession like Bennacer – but also in the attacking phase where his range of passing and ability to dribble between the lines catches the eye.

The scouts see Adli a very talented player whose possible arrival would not close the doors to the purchase of the much desired attacking midfielder. Bordeaux want €10m in order to sell the 21-year-old and as mentioned other clubs are keen, but this is exactly the kind of player that Pioli has asked for.

    What will happen with this purchase in case Pioli will be sacked within the season? For 15 mil Eur, we could have brought Kamara

      Y should u pray for Pioli’s sack? or think he will or may be sacked? after all he brought the team back to champions league and he is not doing bad.

    2. Kourosh says:

      That’s just stupid. How about we sign no one in case he gets fired. (Which he won’t be)

      1. Vero Rossonero says:

        It seems as though the people arbitrarily like or dislike players being linked to Milan. People seem to dislike this potential transfer, for some reason, despite the fact that before the last couple of weeks nobody probably ever heard of Adli, notwithstanding the fact that mighty PSG though well enough of him to have him in their youth ranks. Prior to the last few weeks nobody has probably ever heard of Kaio Jorge, who has not even played in Europe, and people are incensed we didn’t sign him. So random and weird.
