Milan After Tottenham Fullback and Man United Loanee

Milan are have laid eyes on two Premier League players, Emerson Royal and Sofyan Amrabat, in their early search for reinforcements. They’ll have to negotiate with Fiorentina for the latter. He’ll head back after a so-so loan spell at Manchester United.

The Rossoneri aim to sign a new fullback who can preferably star on either wing, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs. The Brazilian can do it even though he’s more natural on the right. He hasn’t been a full-time starter this campaign. He has featured 23 times, scoring once. The 25-year-old has tallied 100 appearances with the Spurs and has 10 caps with Brazil.

The main problem for Milan is that Tottenham ask for €30M for Emerson Royal, and they don’t plan a major investment in that role, while Amrabat could be worth half as much, TuttoSport informs. The Moroccan talisman won’t stay at Fiorentina, which could demand €15/18M. Manchester United would have to spend €20M to keep him, plus €5M add-ons, on top of the €9M initial fee. He’s under contract with the Viola only until 2025.

The midfielder has starred 26 times this season, starting on just 11 occasions. The Rossoneri tested the waters with his agency SEG, which also represents Tijjani Reijnders.

Our Take on Milan, Emerson Royal, and Amrabat

An offensive-minded option at right-back would round out their fullback corps, but those players come at a premium. The latter could easily be a bargain in the right scheme and if properly motivated.
