‘Lee Kang-in signing rumours’ have arisen, but they are targeting other players.
“AC Milan are close to signing Daichi Kamada (26, Frankfurt),” said Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is familiar with the transfer market. They also want Ruben Loftus-Cheek (27, Chelsea), he added.
Japan international midfielder Kamada is having a decent season. He has 16 goals and six assists in 45 appearances. He is second on the team in scoring, behind only Randall Kolo Moani.
In addition to his goalscoring ability, Kamada’s strength is his versatility. This season, he has moved between attacking midfield and central midfield. At times, he has also played as a left-back. He likes to play simple and sensible rather than flashy. Initially linked to fellow Bundesliga side Dortmund.
However, a move to AC Milan is closer. AC Milan are currently in fourth place in the Italian Serie A. In the UEFA Champions League (UCL), they reached the quarterfinals. Despite their decent results, they are looking to strengthen their squad. By bringing in the versatile Kamada, they hope to reduce their reliance on their ‘ace’ Raphael Varane. Kamada will be a free agent after this season.먹튀검증
At the same time, Cheek is also being targeted. The former ‘Chelsea’s Sacred Heart Youth’ made his first-team debut in 2014. Like Kamada, Cheikh can play in a variety of secondary positions. He”s 6’2″ and has a spectacular dribble.
However, his development has been slow, with frequent injuries holding him back. He was never able to establish himself as a regular starter. This season, he made 32 appearances, but only two assists. There is also no word on a new contract. Cheek’s contract expires in June 2024.
Meanwhile, AC Milan have recently been linked with a move for Lee Kang-In. However, it is unclear if the deal will go through as the club are after players in a similar position to Lee.
