Milan Keying On Pair of Names for Defense and Midfield

Milan have been linked to a host of targets to fill out their squad, and Abdou Diallo and Raphael Onyedika are atop of the shortlists in their respective lists at the moment. The Rossoneri are closer to the PSG outcast than to Japhet Tanganga. In any case, the Tottenham prospect is well-liked by coach Stefano Pioli.

According to Calciomercato, the center-back’s agent is pushing for the transfer. The Scudetto winners aim for a loan with option to buy. They want the counterparty to contribute to his €3.5M wages. There has been an opening on such formula. Though, more work needs to be done to strike a deal. The Senegalese has been deemed an excess to requirements and will most likely transfer.

Milan will be patient on the Diallo deal, and also in finding the right guy for the midfield, where Onyedika has jumped ahead of the competition. As per TuttoSport, Midtjylland have slapped an initial €7M price tag on the 22-year-old. That would surely be affordable.

The Rossoneri are making careful evaluations, both tactically and technically. The Nigerian youngster turned heads in his first full-fledged season with his current team, posting 4 goals and 3 assists in 48 appearances. He would come in with great conditioning as he has already featured in seven official matches. He can also play in the defense in a pinch.
