Whilst the ownership issues rumble on in Milan and Euro 2016 plays out in France, there are still some bargains that the club can look at.
Adriano Galliani will need to be shrewd in this window as they already trail Inter and Juventus on summer signings but that does not mean that they do not have some excellent players on their radar.
- Leonardo Pavoletti: The Genoa striker could be one of the more obvious moves for Milan this summer. Speaking to Sky Sport Italia he admitted that a move to the Rossoneri would certainly be welcomed. He said that “I hear and have read about their interest and I am pleased about that. Let’s see what will happen for now I am happy at Genoa.” With 15 goals and three assists it is arguable that he should have been called up by Antonio Conte for the Euro’s in France and at 27 years of age, he could provide support or act as a replacement for Carlos Bacca.
- Mateo Kovacic: The Croatian midfielder maybe concentrating on Euro 2016 but this doesn’t mean that the Rossoneri should not act quickly to secure his signature. The attacking midfielder struggled to get enough playing time at Real Madrid and struggled for form at their neighbours Inter before this but he is a talent. Milan could build their team around him and he may then produce the form he often shows for the national team but they will need to move now in case he has an outstanding tournament. Calciomercato.com think this is a move that could go ahead after Adriano Galliani hinted that the move could be imminent.
- Markus Henriksen: The Norwegian midfielder has scored 19 goals in all competitions this season and has caught the eye of Milan and Napoli. His representative, Jim Solbakken claimed that there had been contact with AZ Alkmaar and the two clubs and said that the 23-year-olds future could lie with Italy. The problem lies with speed again as he is a hot property and Silvio Berlusconi seems to have put his transfer plans on hold whilst the sale of the club is looked at.
- Vincent Janssen: AZ Alkmaar have, according to Sky Sports, already been in talks with Tottenham Hotspur over their talented 21-year-old who has been called the new Ruud Van Nistelrooy. There is no doubt that the Milanese would welcome another young Dutch forward especially as last season he scored 27 goals in 34 games (20 of these came in the second half of the campaign). The forward doesn’t just score goals, his range of passing is excellent and his hold up play has seen him take the eye of the national team.
- Franco Vasquez: The 27-year-old support striker was one of the few admirable players for a relegation threatened Palermo this season. The man who, the year before, had formed such a brilliant relationship with Paulo Dybala was perhaps unlucky not to get a move last summer, yet he stayed. Even as the Sicilians battled against the drop he managed to provide eight goals and provide seven assists. It is his creative abilities that have seen some of Europe’s top clubs look to obtain him and Milan would have to act quickly at Tottenham Hotspur are also on his tail. Maurizio Zamparini values him at 25 million Euros but he could be picked up for less.
