Former Captain Ambrosini Backs Milan to Sign Benfica and Leipzig Talents

Former Rossoneri captain Massimo Ambrosini has backed his ex-club to get their hands on two of Europe’s most in-form players, saying that the seven-time European champions need to reinforce particular positions on the pitch. With the club heading into a future under new management – the Arab-funded InvestCorp – a transfer market overhaul is in line at the San Siro.

In an exclusive interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the ex-midfielder spoke about the positions Milan need to bolster.

“A right winger, a playmaker and a center forward,” he quoted.

Commenting further, Ambrosini also suggested two names who the Rossoneri have good chances of oboarding ahead of the 2022/23 season.

He said: “I like Darwin Nuñez of Benfica, but everything will depend on what amounts are invested. Nkunku of Leipzig is another profile that teases me.”

Elliott Management are expected to part ways as the owners in the summer and Ambrosini believes the current management has done a wonderful job by relying on the best managers in the business.

“Among Elliott’s merits is that of having chosen the right men. Maldini and Massara have built a top team, making the most of the material available. Pioli has done the same. leading the group with a clear and always proactive game idea,” he said. (via MilanNews)

Milan have been linked with a plethora of names for a move in the summer, but it is highly expected of the management to focus on a striker and a winger, and both the aforementioned names fall right into the category of what the club needs.
