After securing the arrival of Malick Thiaw for the defence, AC Milan will now be able to focus solely on the midfield. Several names have been linked with them but it seems the wish list has been narrowed down to two.
The Rossoneri are in need of a midfielder to make up for the departure of Franck Kessie, who joined Barcelona on a free transfer. Tommaso Pobega did well when he came on last night but he has slightly different characteristics.
According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), there are two names in particular on Milan’s wish list: Joao Gomes (Flamengo) and Aster Vranckx (Wolfsburg). The Rossoneri like the former the most but the price tag is slightly higher than what they thought.
As for Vranckx, a move seems possible but Atalanta are also keeping tabs on the situation. One thing is for sure: Milan will be able to focus solely on the midfield in what remains of the transfer window.
