Tuttosport: Milan in the market for a No.6 – three targets and the preference

By Ben Dixon -

AC Milan are planning investment into several areas of the squad in the summer, and a report has suggested that a new holding midfielder is a position of interest for Geoffrey Moncada and co. 

The foundations have been laid for the next manager to build on, and Milan plan to strengthen those foundations with a sufficient investment this summer. The targets will be a new striker, a central defender, and a new No.6 is also a requirement.

As Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes, the Rossoneri have the desire to play a ‘leading role’ in the summer mercato, especially after the statement from the Curva Sud this morning, which demanded a replication of last summer’s activities.

Therefore, investment across a range of positions is needed to improve upon this season, especially with so many areas able to be bettered. The club have identified a need for a new midfielder, and the current leader is Youssouf Fofana, who plays for AS Monaco in Ligue 1.

The Frenchman wants to play in the Champions League, a request which Milan can fulfil (as can his current club). He presents a great physical profile, which the report compares to Franck Kessie-like, a profile that the Rossoneri have been missing in recent years.

Sofyan Ambrabat and Renato Veiga are also piquing the interest at Milanello, but nothing has been decided.

    1. I don’t know with Monaco but with France he has a profile like Tonali, covering the defense and sometimes going into the box or shooting from far. He would fit at any position in our midfield right away I think.

  1. What bs is this about fofana wanting to play cl? Is monaco not second in ligue 1? Anyway none of these are a proper purchase.

    If they wanna buy players for 4231 then we need to sell the mezzalas and buy dms and ams.. which is just a ridiculous plan.. otherwise well just go with another season with on midfield, regardless of whos the coach

  2. Amrabat is just a bald headed Krunic. He played a couple of good games at the World Cup, and people started hyping him up.
    Sign Fofana for the present and Veiga for the future

    1. I’m not a fan of Amrabat either. Milan should definitely go all in for Fofana and Veiga. In my opinion Pobega and Bennacer should be sold this summer.

      Only Adli and Musah are worth keeping next season. But Pobega and Bennacer needs to go along with Kjaer and Giroud.

      1. form is temporary, class is permanent

        Bennacer has class, give him a break, he’ll be back to his old self next season.

        1. We will get priced out of Fofana as many RPL clubs like Arsenal are also after him and they have something we don’t – more $$$$$$$

          Most likely we end up with the cheaper Veiga because you know we are owned by Redbird after all.

  3. What happened to Hojbjerg?
    He is made for it. Also he is a leader, which is what we need, especially with Kjaer, Giroud leaving
