Milan Reportedly Earmark Two Up-and-Coming Right-Backs

Milan are monitoring a pair of budding right-backs, Kiliann Sildillia and Joe Scally after the recent Champions League game exposed their lack of depth at the position. Moreover, Davide Calabria hasn’t gotten off to a good start this campaign, Calciomercato informs.

The Rossoneri could address the opposite flank too, as they’ll make an attempt for Juan Miranda to see whether they could onboard him from cheap considering his contractual situation.

Signing either Sildillia or Scally would allow the Milan coach to move Alessandro Florenzi permanently to the left wing to deputize Theo Hernandez. The former has been a regular for Freiburg for about a year. He has collected 55 appearances and assisted twice.

Instead, the 20-year-old transferred from New York City to Borussia Moenchengladbach for €1.80M in January 2021. He has featured 70 times, scoring twice. He has six caps with the USMNT, where he’s teammates with Serie A newcomers Christian Pulisic and Yunus Musah.

Our Take on Milan, Sildillia, and Scally

Calabria has these lulls sometimes, but it might just be a matter of physical condition. It was already clear in the summer that a dynamic fullback who could play on either flank would have been very useful, even more so with Fodé Ballo-Touré on his way out. However, they had a heap of more pressing needs. The American youngster would fit the profile, but it’s uncertain how much money they can spend.
