Sky: Milan consider changing Bennacer’s position and signing a regista

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering altering the position that Ismael Bennacer plays and signing a new regista, according to a report.

The Algeria international arrived in the summer from Empoli and has been one of the bright spots so far this season after taking the place of Lucas Biglia in front of the back four.

However, it appears that discipline may be an issue for the 21-year-old, who has racked up seven yellow cards in nine starts and has already been suspended for a game.

According to reports from Sky Italia – as cited by MilanNews.it – the Rossoneri are thinking about the idea of signing a new midfielder to play in front of the defence.

This would not mean that Bennacer loses his place necessarily; he could move into the mezz’ala position where he would be given more positional freedom.

Reports have linked Milan with a couple of experienced holding midfielders in recent months, such as Javi Martinez of Bayern Munich and Emre Can of Juventus.
