Tuttosport: Milan want Reijnders and €17m Bologna star to complete midfield

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the names that keeps being linked with a move to AC Milan is Nicolas Dominguez, and he remains a very concrete options.

According to Tuttosport (via SempreMilan.it), the idea of signing Dominguez as gaining momentum among the Milan management. Contrary to what was thought in the recent past, he would not be an alternative to Tijjani Reijnders but a complimentary profile.

Ismael Bennacer’s injury and the probable transition to a 4-3-3 formation next season requires Milan to have to increase the number of midfielders in the squad.

Reijnders and Dominguez would thus be starter and reserve in the No.6 role that Pioli is envisioning, sitting at the base of the midfield to break up play and distribute.

Dominguez is valued at €17m even though he has a contract expiring in 2024 with Bologna, which is why his name is linked with several clubs in addition to Milan, one of which is Fiorentina.

  1. 17m ,why waste time then. We should be able to work on those two midfielders in a week. Dominguez is surely a good addition to this team. We should get him than lose him to Fiorentina.

    1. Yes, Reindeers, Dominguez, Musah would be needed to break opponent defense and assisting forwards. The other alt are RLC, bennacer, pobega or krunic respectively to compete in serie a and UCL

      1. I think last year we started the season with Bennacer, Tonali, Krunic, Pobega, Vranckx and that already caused us issues after Kessie not being replaced.

        This season (at least until Jan/Feb) we currently have: Krunic, Loftus-Cheek and Pobega. To me we need at least two more bodies for the midfield still, especially if we want to be able to switch to 4-3-3 on occasion.

  2. Who is writing these? Reijnders can’t tackle. Literally doesn’t know how to tackle at 25 y/o, what will he break up? Sign Dominguez, he is better and knows the league.

  3. How about selemakers in midfield he can hastle d ball from opponents he can pass can dribble but can’t score
    Now dats a midfielder n he has speed prime jack Wilshire

    1. He can surely play a somplified midfield role. Id rather try him in the middle than spend 25 million on a play who isn’t worth more than 15.

  4. If they really want to play 433 they need at least three additional midfielders. Take into account Bennacer is out at least until January. So currently they are at:

    LM – RLC/Pobega
    DM – ?/?
    RM – Krunic/?

    We are so far away from being ready even for preseason.

    1. RM : adili ( that if he stay in ACM next season)
      DM : Reijnder or yunus or dominques ( maybe 2 from that 3 name will coming )

  5. I am sick and tired of milan’s approach to the mercato ….. fed up and disgusted.
    If we really want Reindejers so badly, do we have to make fools of ourselves and take ages to accept his team’s valuation? Why haggle for weeks and weeks like Scrooge?
    Remember Botman? Same old story. Some people never seem to learn.

    1. It’s called not overpaying. It’s what teams do. Otherwise you end up like Chelsea in a year, offloading for the third of the price. Economics101.

      If you want to support a team that buys like a fat kid at a candy store, pick any oil-sponsored team. Easy.
