Tuttosport: Milan believe €18m man is a ‘modern playmaker’ who can cover for Bennacer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan do not consider the signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek to be enough and therefore they are going for Tijjani Reijnders of AZ Alkmaar too, a report claims.

Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) talks about the Milan management’s plan for the midfield department after the arrival of physical presence like Loftus-Cheek who has arrived from Chelsea.

Now, the intention of Geoffrey Moncada is to add a bit of variety to the department and that is why Reijnders is so high on his list. The belief is that the Dutch midfielder has the qualities to be able to cover for the absence of Ismael Bennacer in the build-up phase.

He is seen as a modern playmaker because he can progress play via the dribble as well as with his passing, and he is therefore not just a classic ball distributor. AZ Alkmaar’s request is €18m, but West Ham United are also admirers of the 24-year-old too.

  1. Reijnders is a good player, basically a carbon copy of Bennacer but 2 footed and an excellent shot on him, and he isn’t injury prone. He was excellent against West Ham. If there’s one player we should get it’s him. Get the Dutch back in Milan. We still need a destroyer of we get him though, unless we switch to a 3 man midfield.

    1. So what are we waiting for to sign this guy? The longer we take the more will english clubs tempt him …. then it will be too late …..

  2. Though i must admit i hardly know anything about Reijnders, seems all agree he would be an asset.
    So let’s get him on board straightaway and not haggle for a million euro or two – otherwise some english team will snap him from under our nose. Do you remember a guy called Bothman???!!!!

    1. But we get thiaw in return. And it allowed us to get CDK which is *sigh* u know. But still has potential to be great.

  3. Tijjani is perfect , let’s get him. Since time is sky rocketing, Lets concentrate on frattesi because we need also the fair play regulations for italians.Then Yunus can be brought even in January. We also need aplay maker not a winger .let’s invest in Chikwueze than pulisic. Cardinale wants both Pulisic and Yunus because they are Americans.But be sure they won’t take Milan that far the way we think.
