SM: Milan eye midfielder and winger; key updates on Piatek, Kessie, Paqueta and Rodriguez

By Vito Angele -

After the last two arrivals, namely those of Simon Kjaer and Asmir Begovic, the AC Milan transfer market is experiencing a small stalemate. This is because the Rossoneri are focusing on sales before then returning to intervene on the incoming market.

WHAT IS MISSING – With the change of the formation to a 4-4-2, Milan are looking for a central midfielder and a winger who could even play as a second striker. At the present moment the Milan market is basically blocked because of the exits.

OUTGOING FRONT, THE UPDATES – Work continues on the sale of Ricardo Rodriguez, in this regard, according to Voetbal International, PSV emissaries would be in Milan to negotiate directly with Milan the acquisition of the Swiss full-back.

According to what was collected by, Milan value Rodriguez at around the €10million mark, while the Eredivisie side for now are thinking of a €6-7million figure. The sale could suffer an acceleration in the next few hours. Fenerbahce, for now, remains in the background.

There are no updates on the Piatek front, where the offer of around €30million by Aston Villa – reported by the media in recent days – is not confirmed. The news arrived from unofficial sources of the English club.

Tottenham are also on Piatek, but they must decide whether to make another investment after the almost completed one of Gedson Fernandes.

Offers are also awaited for Suso, with agent Mino Raiola working to send offers for his client to Via Aldo Rossi, which could arrive in the next few hours.

On Franck Kessie: at the moment he will not leave. With the change of formation Milan have only two midfielders in the squad. Things would change only in the event of an irrefutable offer.

Lucas Paqueta does not seem to fall in Milan’s plans at the moment, meaning talks with PSG can go ahead. The Diavolo’s plan would be to sell Paqueta and then go and buy a central midfielder.
