With the new season fast approaching, Rossoneri president Silvio Berlusconi has given the green light for further funds to be used on bringing in a midfielder.
Club CEO Adriano Galliani will be tasked with strengthening the weakest department of the Diavolo with a budget of €10-15 million and could have the new recruit available for Milan’s first Serie A game of the season on 21 August, against Torino at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
A deal could be finalised without waiting for the possible transfers of Carlos Bacca and Alessandro Matri, which have been holding up any possible incomings with the club reluctant to spend before receiving transfer fees for the pair.
Former Sampdoria boss Vincenzo Montella has overseen just two first team arrivals this summer in the shape of forward Gianluca Lapadula from Pescara and defender Gustavo Gomez from Club Atlético Lanús in Argentina.
However, the Rossoneri have been linked with a move for Besiktas central midfielder Jose Sosa and have seen a number of attempts to sign the Argentina international rejected by the Turkish club.
The increase in funds may allow Milan to push through a deal for the 31-year-old however, with Sosa making it clear in recent weeks of his desire to move to Serie A.
