AC Milan head scout Geoffrey Moncada is hugely impressed by the Colombian winger who moved to England this summer.
This summer the Rossoneri supporters were dreaming of an important signing for the right wing in attack but they were not satisfied. Despite the fact that AC Milan were linked with the names of Hakim Ziyech, Domenico Berardi and Marco Asensio, nothing happened at the end. For budget reasons, Milan decided to go ahead with Alexis Saelemaekers and Junior Messias.
However, things will changes soon and AC Milan are expected to make a significant investment for a new right winger. Journalist Carlo Pellegatti reveals that AC Milan head-scout Geoffrey Moncada have followed Luis Sinisterra for a long time and was enchanted by the Colombian winger.
“My big dream for the wing is only one, Luis Sinisterra. At Feyenoord he played on the left, but with Colombia and Leeds United he starts from the right. He reminds me to death of Leao, even if he is less overpowering and devastating on the run. But Sinisterra has great class and confidence, he reminds me of Rafa.
Having one on the right and the other on the left, with De Ketelaere as an attacking midfielder, would drive me crazy. Moncada followed him and AC Milan like him. He has a market value of 25-35 million, therefore in the range of the club”, says Pellegatti.
Luis Sinisterra had a fantastic last year with Feyenoord scoring 23 goals and providing 14 assists before his €25 million transfer to Leeds United. Sinisterra’s adventure in the Premier League has started on the right foot scoring 3 and assisting one in 6 appearances. A creative winger with an explosive dribbling would be perfect addition for Pioli’s squad.
The Colombian attacks defenders one-on-one at the edge of the box, either to drive to the byline for a cutback on the ground or to cut inside for a shot. A threat in transition, his strength is in leveraging his top-end explosiveness over short distances to beat defenders and break down exposed defensive lines.
