Pedulla: Milan target being ‘probed’ by Serie A rival – the information

By Ben Dixon -

AC Milan will sign a defensive midfielder in the upcoming summer window, and one of the players they admire is also being looked at by another Serie A club, meaning a decision might have to be made quickly. 

Several issues were identified in the 2023/24 campaign, and one of them was the lack of cover in midfield. Milan are blessed with some great talent in the middle of the pitch, but there are certainly some issues with the composition of the trio.

Given Fonseca is expected to play a 4-3-3, a continuation/evolution of Stefano Pioli-ball, this issue remains, and a new midfielder is a must in the mercato, even if no one departs because title-winning sides cannot have square pegs in round holes.

Two names have been frequently linked with joining the Rossoneri, and those are Mats Wieffer, who is an increasingly favoured target, and the other is Youssouf Fofana.

This morning, Alfredo Pedulla revealed on his website that the Frenchman is also being looked into by Juventus, and whilst the Turin club are close to signing Douglas Luiz, there is a desire to add another midfielder to their side, and the price tag of €15 million plus bonuses might be a deal too good to turn away from.

    1. Only thing that started here were media speculations. We don’t know for sure if Milan are after Fofana. But for 15 millions + bonuses, he’s a steal.

  1. Not really a player to hold down the midfield in 433, he’d be more suitable in double pivot role, something Motta is likely to play. Fofana is more of a defensive #8 similar to Kessie.

    For 433 we need a classic #6, someone like Wieffer or Amrabat. Still and if true Fofana is available for 15 millions + bonuses, he’s a steal…

    Could work in a trio of Reijnders-Wieffer-Fofana but we’re so packed in midfield, they’d need to offload some first. We’re also bang average in midfield.

  2. Don’t get ahead of yourself guys.

    15million + bonus is what Milan are planning to offer, NOT what French team is asking.

    They set the price, not Milan.

    Just because someone has short time contract left, doesn’t always mean you will get it done cheaply.

    He is going play in Euros, if he shines, there will bunch of clubs ready to offer 30 million.
