Milan Eyeing Up Two Serie A Options for Their Midfield

Milan need reinforcements in the midfield and are after two specialists, Morten Hjulmand and Adrien Tameze. The Rossoneri are decimated at the position since Ismael Bennacer will miss a few months with a knee injury. In addition, backups Aster Vranckx and Tiemoué Bakayoko were on loan and won’t stay. Yacine Adli is likely to depart since he played very little.

According to SportMediaset, they have opened talks with Lecce, with which they have a great relationship. On the other hand, the Salentini want €25M to part ways with their staple, which is also in Borussia Dortmund’s crosshairs. Roma and Juventus were mildly attached to him in the past as well. They could include some makeweights, for instance, young striker Marco Nasti. Instead, Lorenzo Colombo will be brought back despite the Giallorossi picking up their option to buy.

If Hjulmand turned out to be too expensive, Milan could target Tameze, who has been serviceable for a few years, Corriere dello Sport informs (via 90min). Per Alfredo Pedullà, the midfield obtained to insert a €3.5M release clause in his contract after the January window because some transfers didn’t go through due to his team’s excessive valuation.

Monza are also keen on the 29-year-old, who appears ready to leave the Scaligeri after three campaigns. He has starred in a host of positions during his time in Veneto.

Our Take on Milan, Hjulmand, and Tameze

The Lecce maestro would be a great purchase, but they have to move quickly and open up their wallet. The Verona veteran would be useful thanks to his grit and energy, but he’d be an unusual addition since they are supposed to prefer youngsters after their shake-up.
