In addition to Sandro Tonali, Milan are looking to bring in another midfielder. Tiemoue Bakayoko is seemingly their first choice but as talks with Chelsea have slowed down, they could look elsewhere, a report claims.
As reported by Tuttosport (via Milanlive.it), the meeting at a hotel in Milan a few days ago didn’t go unnoticed. The Rossoneri managers spoke with a representative of Florentino Luis, the young Benfica midfielder.
It’s a player that Milan have been following for several months, and his candidacy could increase in the coming days. Benfica are seemingly open to a sale and should the Rossoneri abandon their pursuit of Bakayoko, then he could be their man.
They would only sign the player on a loan with an option to buy. Initially, Benfica were against this formula but they could now give the go-ahead to it. That being said, Bakayoko remains the first choice, at least for now.

ACM should make Babyoko the last choice!
Florentino Luis should be their prime choice and sole choice
All the benefits of acquiring a young skilful, strong running midfielder is correct choice for ACM!
Financial mgmt should priority for success
I agree! We also have big hole in right side of our central defense, while Kjaer played well at the end of last season, i do not trust him. So our chief scout Moncada must have someone in mind, whom he prefers against all others, so we must sign him at all costs! Will it be Fofana, who is clearly great talent, but he has no experience in serie a, which in many cases has been crucial to success or Milenkovic who already knows serie a, and still is young enough to fit in the criteria of Elliot! German Pezzella is Argentine international, and will do everything to remain a starting one, so he could be the answer, and cheaper. Anyways our priority must be central defense, along with Gigio renewal!
