MN: The numbers behind Milan’s interest in Acerbi

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan are keen on making Francesco Acerbi part of their squad this summer as they seek more defensive depth here are some of his figures from last season. 

As has been reported by Milan News, Acerbi is the latest idea that Milan have had to make sure that they have enough central defenders for what will be a very long and difficult campaign.

At the moment there is just Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori, Pierre Kalulu and Alessio Romagnoli but the latter is set to leave the club anyway this summer.

Acerbi is set to leave Lazio this summer and it is assumed that the 34-year-old would not be an expensive signing. He made 30 Serie A appearances last season and managed to score four times, an impressive return for a defender.

He only received one red card across all competitions and three yellow cards. He also got two assists.

He would not be a starter under Stefano Pioli but can provide a good quality level of depth to the backline who brings a lot of Serie A experience.

    1. Because Gabbia is green and not ready at all and needs to be loaned out to gain valuable experience. He gains nothing staying and being the 4th or 5th option mate. We should just resign Romagnoli than spend on Acerbi who is even slower and older than Romagnoli if we are not young to spend big (Bremer) on the CB position IMO.

  1. Whoa Acerbi is not a free agent?
    Milan has to pay to bring this old fart?
    Nah, keep Gabia and sign one of Malick Thiaw or Anel Ahmedhodziz

    1. Thiaw better to sign than ahmedhodzic because he’s trash plus he didn’t want to sign like a year or two that Milan wanted him why now

      1. I would rather Milan keep Romagnoli or sign temporary cheap backup while waiting Gabbia to grow. Should focus the money on AM or RW instead as the young players in that position have not been convincing.

  2. Never pay lazio for veteran player anymore. Remember biglia case. Just renew romagnoli and bring 1 young defender to replace gabbia if you dont want buy bremer
