AC Milan have three names on their shortlist to strengthen their midfield in the January transfer window, according to a report.
It was reported by Sky Italia earlier in the month that the Rossoneri are thinking about the idea of signing a new midfielder to play in front of the defence, with Ismael Bennacer to be deployed as a mezzala.
According to the same outlet – as cited by Calciomercato.com – claims that Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban, along with sporting director Ricky Massara, have a three-name wish list.
Elneny is one of the trio, while Genk starlet Sander Berge and Celta Vigo star Stanislav Lobotka are also both considered options.
The 21-year-old Berge has amassed 26 appearances and scored four goals in all competitions, while Lobotka – branded the ‘new Luka Modric’ – has been linked with Milan before; his agent even confirming interest from the Diavolo over the summer.
