Milan reportedly offer Ascoli €3m plus Felicioli for the 19-year-old Orsolini, in contact with his agent

Milan continue to focus on young Italians for this mercato and Serie B’s Riccardo Oroslini seems to be the top priority.

With a mercato budget that is virtually zero and ‘big signings’ already ruled out by Adriano Galliani – who is managing the upcoming window due to the delays in the sale to the Chinese – the strategy of the Diavolo is to focus on cheap youth.

In recent weeks, the name of Ascoli’s Riccardo Orsolini has been tied to that of Milan and according to Gianluca Di Marzio, there were new contacts between Galliani and Orsolini’s agent Donato De Campli on Tuesday.

Di Marzio writes that Milan have asked for a bit more time before they can make more progress on this front as they have to sell a player before they can sign someone, and Luiz Adriano’s exit could finance the move for Orsolini. The Sky Italia transfer guru claims the Rossoneri have already made an initial bid, offering €3 million plus Gian Filippo Felicioli, who is currently on loan at Ascoli.

Ascoli, meanwhile, apparently demand €4 million for the young talent who’s scored 4 goals this season. Galliani has already confirmed that he likes the player and sees him as a possible back-up for Suso. Juventus (together with Atalanta), Napoli (willing to let Orsolini stay at Ascoli until June) and Sampdoria have all stepped forward but Milan seem to be in the lead for the Italy U20 international.

Orsolini, 19, is primarily a right winger but can also play in other roles in a 4-3-3. The possible exits of Luiz Adriano and Keisuke Honda could open space for him in the squad of Vincenzo Montella.

I hope we get a 20m China offer for Honda.

rosso138

That would be amazing…

7m Adriano, let’s be real 7-8m Honda, 3-4m Vagnioni, 3-4m Zapata, 5m Mati

Total if lucky 27-30m which could get us Badelj + Benassi

Gman

Dude, offers from China. 20m IS realistic, lol.

misund

We wont get much for Honda, his contract expires at the end of the year. He will go for free or a very low fee.

Hopefully we can cash in on Vangioni and Zapata atleast enought to get Badelj.

Mati is here on loan we do not have the rights to sell him. He is a very good passer, something we need. I’d like to see him at 100% fitness before writing him off.

Wes

the Chinese don’t like the Japanese, don’t really see Honda being a fan favorite for any of the clubs in china

Jibola

We need 2 experienced players to drive this team technically and in form of leadership. I remember how Van Bommel helped to drive us to the 2011 scudeto, the youths would struggle on a mental level when the going gets really tough from Feb onwards.

Orsolini is welcomed but we shouldnt be too carried away with youths.

rosso138

Somebody like Monaco’s Joao Moutinho would be awesome… He and Badelj…. That would be good enough for a fighting spot…

Gman

Why would Monaco players want to come to Milan? They have a clear project, a stacked owner, can win the league and are competetive in Cl. + he would cost at least 40m

ardi

MIlan should not play this game, Orsolini has a very high world class potential and for 4M that will be a steal deal for milan, they should not push it to much before another team jumps in the deal at get him like it has happend meny times for milan. As for CHINA I hope they make a 50M+ deal on Bacca, 10M+ on Adriano and 7M on Sosa and 5M on Zapata the same with Vangioni and Poli. I will like Milan to sell Niang to Arsenal for 30M, they with never get that deal again, as niang has… Read more »

herry

I really like your idea, but if Bacca wouldn’t go to westham (epl), let alone some chinese club. We ideally all wish one of those bids you mentioned to be happened, but for now let’s get sttled for adriano going to moscow.

ak

Juve can’t ask for more than 60/65 million? The fact is they would only start considering offers at 90 million. He also never wanted Milan, Juve were by far the priority. Should he leave Juventus, he 100% will leave Italy. Bara, Real, United are the type of teams that even only have hope to sign him. Juve aren’t complete idiots to sell Dybala now, they know he’s world class. He’s only been on bad form due to injuries this season. Rugani doesn’t have a release clause, and doesn’t want to leave. He just renewed, and is getting good playing time… Read more »

Gman

This is real life not playstation. Juve would never sell us Dybala and Rugani who is Barzagli’s long term replacement. Do you really think Dybala wants to come to us when clubs like Barca, Bayern and Real are interested?. Why should we go for a injury prone player like Rossi?

Shrikant

Too much FIFA game bruh ?
Come back to reality.

gazonga

you got to sober up first before typing your idea

Nas

Unwrapped a great Christmas present this year
A three night weekend break to Milan in January plus tickets to see Milan v Napoli!!
Best wife ever!

Gman

Does she have a sister?

Pelle80

Me got an authentic milan home jersey same as the one used by players,with my name written on it. Best wifey!

Nas

Ha, 3, there all married though!

Milanista121

I’m all for signing him, but i would prefer him to stay there until the end of the season. We do need a little more experience, especially in the centre of the field. Badelj as some people have mentioned here would be nice.
I do think that selling some players who arent of much use to us – like Adriano and Vangioni – should be a priority.

nick

Would love to see Milan sign Belotti in the summer to replace Bacca.

Would prefer Luiz Gustavo or Kovacic in January. Belotti, Iago Falque, Caldara and Mahrez next summer.

Get rid of Sosa, Mati Fernandez and Zapata in January.

AC Milan lover

Caldara is signing for Juventus … As per the latest reports that I read … He didnt play against Empoli since he was having his medical at Juve … They will sign him and let him stay at Atalanta to aid his development

Sheva

And keep Poli?

This is why this team has developed into a joke.

One player is here just because his shirt sells good in asia, one player is here just because hes italian, one player is here just because he can run a maratoon, one player is here just because of his looks, one player is here just because he has GREAT team moral, one player is her just because he was free agents.
How many players are here because of FOOTBALL SKILLS?

donremie

Let’s hope adriano leaves, n we can get d orsolini n one matured MF, honestly I was hoping we could get fabregas or yaya toure but it seems both of dem have settled back into dia teams, d next best thing is badej becos it is clear dat milan don’t hv d funds to finance any big transaction, even if we hv d money, january mercato sucks n u can’t get d best players..Let’s just remain calm n believe dat we can do well with d team we hv now

#1Milan Fan South Africa

iF jUVENTUS WANTS 50 MILLION FOR DYBALA I THINK WE SHOULD GO FOR IT AS WELL AS RUGANI.i THINK MONTELLA SHOULD RECALL MASTOUR AND EASE HIM INTO WHAT WE ALL KNOW HE CAN DO.I ALSO THINK THAT WE SHOULD SELL NIANG AND BUY KOZIELLO OR DEMBELE FROM DORTMUND.

Kourosh

Based on what has happened in the last two years, I’m coming to the conclusion that Mastour CAN’T DO SH*T. And we had such high hopes for the boy. Shame.

dejan10

If this doesn’t give Honda the hint that he needs to leave in January nothing will.

ted

Buying Orsolini and Pašalić upturn in form, Montella can start rotating as he should. Orsolini as vice Suso, Pašalić deployed as left mez’zala so Jack can play up front on wing and bench Niang. Then we can say farwell to Honda and Adriano as we have young Orsolini and Niang to sub on wings. Mati, Sosa, Ely, Vangioni should also leave and bring Badelj for that cash and another midfielder

folumilano

Adriano and viagoni should be given more playing time as both still have aomething to offer, honda, zapata, ely should be sold and diego lopez should be sold completely.

Sheva

Zapata, POLI, honda, bertolacci, adiano, mati, sosa can all leave of galliani is SERIOUS about the transfer window

Kabon

Whatever… Still think he’d be better than Honda

perttu junnonaho

If we don”t have the money to fund world class players, then we must sign two young and up-coming star players in the making, who are Orsolini and Mattia Caldara!

Alexander

Seriously why the likes for pasalic??
