Five Free Agents That Milan Could Sign This Summer

The Rossoneri are heading into the 2020-21 season under Stefano Pioli after a managerial U-turn, but will he scour the free market at all?

The stage was set for Ralf Rangnick to come into Milan over the summer, but after a series of disputes between Rangnick and the club regarding his future role, he will no longer come in.

Instead, it’s the well-liked and level-headed Pioli who will take Milan into the next season. His side finished the season strongly, but will they be bringing in any free agents this summer? Here’s five that could potentially happen:

Nathaniel Clyne

The Liverpool man has experienced something of a drop in his career – he moved to Anfield in 2015 and has since made over 100 appearances, but he’s fallen well down the pecking order.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s emergence saw Clyne released at the end of his contract this summer, and with full-back options light at Milan, Clyne could be a fine addition from Pioli.

Ryan Fraser

The Scot left Bournemouth ahead of the Premier League restart. His contract was up and whilst it looked like Liverpool would make a move for him, they’ve seemingly dropped out.

Now the likes of Leeds and Newcastle United are vying for Fraser, but a move abroad could really suit a player like Fraser, and Milan could really suit him.

He’s a wide player capable of playing deeper, or a bit higher. He’s tonnes of attributes that would translate well to the Italian game, but still, this seems like an unlikely signing for Pioli, if a strong one.

Malang Sarr

With defensive options somewhat short all across the Milan backline, the addition of Malang Sarr could be a welcomed one at Milan.

The 21-year-old has recently been released by French outfit Nice and he’s since been linked with a host of clubs from across Europe, including Arsenal.

He’s dynamic, pacey and a young player – this would be a huge signing for Pioli and Milan.

Matthew Longstaff

The Newcastle United man burst onto the scene along with brother Sean, but despite an impressive debut season at the club, both parties failed to agree to a fresh deal.

Having featured nine times in the last Premier League season, scoring two goals from midfield, expect there to be a few clubs across the UK and Europe looking at the 20-year-old.

He’s energetic, dynamic, and not afraid of a battle in the middle of the park – learning from the likes of Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer as well, Longstaff could become a fine player at Milan.

Mario Gotze

A one-time World Cup-winning player, but now a footballer down on his luck – Gotze is at a crossroads in his career.

He’s recently rejected the opportunity to move to the USA to link-up with Inter Miami, with the German wanting to remain in Europe.

Few clubs seem keen on Gotze and his wages, and the risk of him being in poor form as he has been at Dortmund, but all it might take is a bit of faith from a manager like Pioli.

At 28, Gotze still has years left ahead of him, and playing in an exciting, attacking Milan side could once again bring the best out of him.

One comment

  1. We must fight really hard for Malang Sarr”s signature, as he could cover Theo and Alessio when need to, so because he can be signed with free transfer, we must go all in!
