Milan Line Up More Additions to Their New-Look Midfield

Ruben Loftus-Cheek took the medicals and put pen to paper Thursday, but Milan won’t stop there in the midfield. Only the official announcement is missing for the Chelsea’s youth product. The Rossoneri are making progress in their pursuits of Yunus Musah and Tijjani Reijnders, Sky reports. They have also touched base for Bologna’s Nicolas Dominguez.

The USMNT star has agreed to the contract proposal. If he joined, he’d earn €2M annually. Il Diavolo is negotiating the fee with Valencia, which need to sell due to financial problems. They asked for €25/30M, while the suitors tendered €20M. There’s optimism the gap will be closed.

According to SportMediaset, AZ Alkmaar’s midfield maestro Reijnders has different offers, but he put them on stand-by to wait for Milan. He has signed off on a five-year contract with €1.7M wages. The negotiation between clubs isn’t as advanced as for Musah. The Rossoneri could get the deal done for €16M plus €2M add-ons.

Instead, Dominguez is a fallback option. He could transfer for a cheap sum since his contract with Bologna is up in 2024. He was offered by his agent, Calciomercato relays.

Our Take on the Milan Midfield

It appears that they won’t insist on Davide Frattesi and won’t splurge too much to replace Sandro Tonali, but it’d be a fine triple swoop if they got all their targets for the rumored figures. However, their lack of Serie A experience and the need to adjust to a new league could be a problem at first. Adding a rock-solid player like, for instance, Lecce’s Morten Hjulmand would lessen those worries.
