Milan are on the prowl for a new left-back option, but they might ultimately lean on their in-house resources if they don’t find an entirely convincing one. They will take things up a notch once Fode Ballo-Touré departs. Fulham, Nice, and Bologna are battling to capture him, TuttoSport informs (via Quotidiano Sportivo).
The Rossoneri have added Sassuolo’s Rogerio and Atalanta’s Matteo Ruggeri to Riccardo Calafiori in their upgraded wish list. The former counts as a player grown in Italy for the UEFA lists despite being Brazilian since he joined the Neroverdi, with the help of Juventus, at a very young age. The Emilian outfit recently rejected an €8M offer from Spartak Moscow for ethical reasons.
While the Milan execs look for a new left-back, Stefano Pioli has been using Alessandro Florenzi in such a position. He could be deployed there regularly, deputizing Theo Hernandez, if the management prefers bringing a new contributor on the other wing.
Our Take on the Milan Search for a New Left-Back
It’s not a priority, so they might as well wait for the late-window discounts. Rogerio is solid but likely a bit too pricey. Ruggeri is promising but injury-prone.
