In the Champions League, AC Milan faced many difficulties which prove that more experience and a strong bench are needed in order to compete with the best clubs in Europe while continuing to dominate in the Serie A as well. Rotation is key to any team which aims high. In this context, the injuries at Milanello obviously crippled the team even further.
This is why Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara are planning for a productive transfer market window in January already. There will not be crazy expenses, but the management are carefully studying some operations which would imprve the squad greatly.
According to what is reported by Calciomercato.com, one of the ‘hottest’ names on the club’s shortlist is Romain Faivre, 23-year-old attacking midfielder of Ligue 1 club Brest. He was close, reportedly to joining Milan, but a deal never went through.
Julian Alvarez of River Plate, 21, is also an important name on AC Milan’s agenda. The young forward can be an affordable option as he has a 25-million-euro release clause. However, many European clubs are also after his signature.
Three talents in Belgium are also being monitored, adds the same source. We are talking about Yari Verschaeren who is 20 years old and playing for Anderlecht as an attacking midfielder. Then, Charles De Ketelaere as well as Noa Lang, respectively 20 and 22, are also targeted by AC Milan. They play for Belgian side Club Brugge. The first is an attacker while the second is a left-winger.
