Reports: Milan’s ideas for new midfield signing change after seeing Tonali and Pobega in action

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have decided to go for a new holding midfielder having not received the right guarantees from their first three friendlies, it is claimed.

The Rossoneri face a few question marks with regards to their midfield department, given that Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer are very much the established pairing in the double pivot but both will be missing for a few games when they leave for the African Cup of Nations in January.

With Sandro Tonali, Tommaso Pobega and Rade Krunic the options that will be left – the latter two not being natural defensive midfielders – there has been a lot of speculation suggesting that the management will move to sign a new player in that position.

According to the latest from Daniele Longo, Pobega and Tonali have not disappointed in preseason so far necessarily, but the management know that they need a player with different characteristics.

Boubacar Kamara and Tiemoue Bakayoko had been probed, but in the last few days the idea of going for a more technical midfielder and one that knows how to create more is being considered, therefore not one like the duo mentioned. Rudy Galetti also confirms this news.

  1. Kamara is valued so much higher than their reported asking price for him, I’m amazed no one has snapped him up yet. Would be a great signing IMO.

    1. I just feel that ACM are just failing again
      They need an a playmaker and have not signed anyone and are shying away from hakim, Stabizer, and Vlasic so now it’s Cebalos?

      I think they will struggle in Seria A and in UCL well maybe it would have been better not to be there
