After the final game of the season against Cagliari, Stefano Pioli insisted that the Rossoneri are in need of two players in each position, highlighting, in particular, the need for two new midfielders of starter-level quality to arrive.

Milan continues to be linked with a number of targets as a result, such as Brescia’s Sandro Tonali, Benfica’s Florentino Luis, and even former loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko.

However, Colombian outlet Antena 2 believes that Milan is readying an assault on Zenit’s Wilmar Barrios, a 27-year-old that has 28 caps with the Colombian national team.
