Sky: Milan on the hunt for a new goalkeeper as Primavera graduate is set for new loan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking for a reinforcement in another position as they look to send a promising young talent out on loan, according to a report.

According to what Peppe Di Stefano has told Sky (via MilanNews), goalkeeper Alessandro Plizzari is ready to go on loan again and Milan are looking for a player who can replace him as the third-choice in that particular role, more specifically as a back-up to the first choice Mike Maignan and the No.2 Ciprian Tatarusanu.

As we mentioned in a recent feature, Plizzari is no longer really a Primavera prospect as he is 21 now and is at a crucial stage in his development – a stage where being the third choice goalkeeper is not ideal.

He couldlearn from Maignan and Tatarusanu, but a loan could be the right call as Andreas Jungdal in the academy is not a bad emergency third choice to have to call upon while Plizzari could secure valuable minutes.

    Fire Tatrusanu and make Plizzari second choice.
    He is extremely talented. If nurtured well can end up easily like Donnarumma

      Problem though at that scenario would still be that he practically wouldnt get a minute either all season so it would pretty much be status quo compared to now. Anyways both he and jungdal are great talents but the dane is younger so keeping him in the primavera while also called upon if needed which obviously seems unlikely currently would make the most sense. In my view though tatarusano has done pretty well the few times we used him except for his disastrous debut,

      Plizzari wasn’t great on loan last season. Poor performance. Need more time or need to go for another youngster.
