The sale of Sandro Tonali means that AC Milan must now look to rebuild their midfield department and there are a number of names being targeted, a report claims.
As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Davide Frattesi is the name at the top of the list and CEO Giorgio Furlani began talks yesterday, and it seems to be a battle with Roma who have a 20% resale clause which could function as a discount.
Inter were in pole position to buy the Italy international but without the sale of Marcelo Brozovic – which is slow in coming – they do not have the funds to fully close the Frattesi deal.
In addition to Frattesi, Milan are keen Tijjani Reijnders of AZ Alkmaar, Yunus Musah of Valencia and Florentino Luis of Benfica, who is an old target but his asking price is currently around €40m. PSV’s Ibrahim Sangaré is on the list too, so there is no shortage of options.
