Yacine Adli is the latest in a long line of players linked to Milan this summer. The midfield, particularly attacking side is still lacking depth, if not quality, and it is surely imperative that at least one new player arrives.
Adli is 21 and a former PSG player, he was once very highly rated and tipped for stardom but has not exactly grown as much some would have expected but the player is of course still young. He is best suited for a more advanced midfield role.
Various scouting reports exists on the player. The noted strengths are dealing well in tight space and beating defenders and by extension finding his teammates. He is able to play wide but prefers to work centrally. Most agree that his weakness lies mostly on the defensive side and pace. He is somewhat tall but heading is not his strongest attribute. The 2020-2021 Ligue 1 season saw him become an almost regular player, starting 25 leagues games – plus making 10 subs appearances. A total of 2417 minutes yielded 2 goals and 5 assists.
PSG will receive a percentage of the fee Bordeaux might earn from his sale. The question, as relevant ever, is can Milan find a deal with his current team. Many signs point to Milan’s inability to pay any more transfer fees this summer.
