Journalist Carlo Pellegatti has put forward the idea that Jesse Lingard of Manchester United could be AC Milan’s trequartista signing.
The issue that continues to dominate the media headlines and the discussions among the fan base is Milan’s search for a new attacking midfielder, given there is less than two weeks remaining in the transfer window.
According to Pellegatti (via MilanGuys), Milan are still working on the right name to replace Hakan Calhanoglu and they are searching for the right profile both from a technical point of view but also an attacking one too.
He claims to have been told about a player who would like to leave Manchester United in Jesse Lingard, a player that fits the reported identikit of a trequartista who can play between the lines or on the right wing.
“Will it be him? I don’t know, but it’s a name we could discuss and talk about,” he said. Last season, Lingard managed 9 goals and 4 assists in 16 Premier League games on loan at West Ham.
