Tuttosport: Rangnick puts Milan’s interest in Empoli starlet on hold – the reason

By Isak Möller -

This summer, many changes will be made at AC Milan as a youth revolution is on the way. Therefore, the Rossoneri are scanning the market for potential targets, along with Ralf Rangnick who is set to become the new manager. 

According to today’s edition of Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com), Samuele Ricci is one of three midfielders that Milan have added to their wish list (read the full story here). However, Rangnick has put their interest on hold.

The German manager wants to see more of the Empoli starlet, who has made 21 appearances in Serie A this season. In other words, Rangnick hasn’t had time to fully evaluate the 18-year-old and until then, no moves will be made.

Taking on a double role as head coach and director of the technical area, Rangnick will certainly have a lot of power at the club. Milan fans can only hope that the youth project will work out well after years of disappointments.
