Everton Soares is once again mentioned as a target of Milan, but the desire remains to sign Ángel Correa.

The transfer market ends in less than a week and Milan are still missing a reinforcement in attack, as the two-month pursue of Atlético Madrid’s Ángel Correa has not yielded the desired result yet.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio on Calciomercato l’Originale on Tuesday, Correa continues to be the number one target of the club. Ángel only wants the Rossoneri but the gap between the offer of Milan and the request of Atlético remains as always and there has not been any breakthrough in the form of the Spanish club lowering their demands, or the Diavolo increasing their offer.

Di Marzio claims, however, that Milan are evaluating alternatives to Correa and the name of Éverton has returned to fashion. The Brazilian winger was a primary target of Milan when Leonardo was still at the club but since he left there had been no developments on that front.

However, the Italian journalist suggests that Milan have re-established contacts with Grêmio to discuss the 23-year-old, who won the Copa América with Brazil at the start of the summer. In any case, there are major problems in making a deal for Éverton as he is not owned 100% by Grêmio, but instead his ownership is split between Grêmio, Fortaleza Esporte Clube and the agents Celso Rigo and Gilmar Veloz. With so many parties involved, it’s hard to imagine Milan striking a deal in time.

The Rossoneri would also need to make a sale in order to invest in Correa or Éverton, who is worth €40m according to Di Marzio. The mercato soon ends and the attacker is still missing.

No, because Milan seem to be cursed that’s why. Nothing ever works out for them. Their good works is either marred by Injury or bad acquisitions or they keep choosing to make wrong decisions. Who in the world would choose Correa who is likely to be a waste of Money over assurance of quality in Olmo or Soares. Both players have development potential for high value just like any other world class players. But you can’t really say that about Correa, Can you? He has experience and a lot of determination and big lungs but he is neither strong, fast… Read more »

I don’t think they really want Éverton. It’s just Managements ploy to have Atlético think otherwise to make them sell. But I hope that don’t sell so that Milan could possibly sign Soares or Olmo or someone just as good.

Everton Soares is a player Milan need. I watched him in the Copa America and he made a big difference to a Brazil team that was lacking in the final third.

He will add the quality Milan are lacking upfront. However, Giampaolo must setup the team to play 4231.

Kessie and Bennacer as the 2 DMs

Paquetà behind Piatek with Suso RW and Everton Soares LW.
————————Donnarumma—————————-
Calabria——Romagnoli—-Musacchio—-Hernandez

Yeah but Where is Leao in the picture? He should be where Suso is lame because he has made himself lame with laziness upon all the quality he has.

Btw, Leao is the fastest player Milan has Since Kaka. If he fulfills his potential Milan rise but I’m afraid that with this Suso Madness he might not be given enough game to fly. Hmmm Suso is a curse.

I would stick to a 3 man midfield. They don’t have Kessie’s replacement, a holding midfielder that can step in when Kessie is absent.

But Giampaolo have reportedly chosen 4321. Somebody tell me what kind of formation is that? The formation seems just as odd as Giampaolo.

I agree with nick 100%. That formation will work magic with just only 1 signing . Everton soares is just what we need. All these waste of time on Correa should stop. The management should sign Everton and focus on financial aspect instead.

Exactly. Brazil use this formation to win the Copa America without Neymar. Our wingbacks love to attack just like the wingbacks for Brazil. I hope Milan use 4231.

I don’t think we’ll really sign him. Maybe it is just to put some pressure on AM. Anyway, we seem to be a little lost right now. I am not getting what is going on. Perhaps we couldn’t sell the players we needed because they were devalued.

One major problem Milan has had to deal with for the past 6 to 7 years is getting rid of unwanted players.
I don’t want to blame Maldini and Boban too much for this mecarto cos unwanted players never want to leave. Being in Milan to them is a stage they may never have dreamt of.
I like Everton alot, good player with speed and is a goal threat. Will be glad if we get him

This news are just to put pressure on AtM. Otherwise , if we could really get Everton for 40M , i hope that happens asap. Some VERY SUSPECIOUS UNRELIABLE source claimed that we have afreed a 22M + 6M bonuses for Rakitić , who’ll sign a 5M… Read more »

Yeah you are absolutyely correct Assim and as much as i would like to see everton in milan it simply seems out of reach unless we was able to orchestrate a deal where we paid over several seasons while propably also getting somekind of a discount.

This are mere speculations in my opinion, either Di Marzio is lost or they are trying to pressure Atletico.

Anyway I would be over the moon too if they sign Everton but I am a bit sceptical about this report.

Also, Dinamo qualified for CL. Now watch Dani Olmo becoming one of the most sought after youngsters in Europe.

We should have spent our €90 budget on two of Everton, Neres, and James Rodriguez . Theo was a good signing. But a left winger and a creative AM are more important than all our five new players.

Maaaan I’ve been saying this since Jan. We should have got Everton and either neres or saint max. I would take Isco over James though as a atm. Other than that we would have been good. Speed on attack, James/Isco as a great atm. It’s too damn late now. Instead we change formations and bought players just to go back to a 433

Leonardo already had Everton and Dani Olmo lined up with Bakayoko being bought out. With those 3 signings and Cutrone staying our team would be complete already, they would just have to work on selling of the deadwood.

Exactly. It was a big mistake letting Leo go. He was putting us first in line for all the good Brazilian talent. Idc how ppl feel about him. He got us Silva, I believe Pato and was on the verge of getting us Everton, neres and olmo.

Leo quit, he was not fired. His track record even though short, but suspect at best. But gazidis hired inexperienced maldini and boban. Will see how it works out. I would of hired somebody more experienced, with good track record.
