The €25m rated Italian replacement of Suso

Bologna starlet Riccardo Orsolini could be the replacement of Suso. AC Milan will try to sign the Italian winger even without Champions qualification. 

On Monday AC Milan host Bologna at San Siro. Thanks to the great work of Sinisa Mihajlovic, former coach of the Rossoneri, Bologna have secured salvation even for this season. The Rossoneri desperately need a win to keep Champions League hopes alive but Milan-Bologna is also going to a good opportunity to scout Riccardo Orsolini.

AC Milan have set their sights on the 22-year-old right winger Orsolini, a player of Juventus currently on loan at Bologna. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, sporting director Leonardo is considering the Italian as a possible replacement for Suso.

Riccardo Orsolini would be a transfer target even in the event of failure to qualify for Champions League. Young, talented and with great perspective, Orsolini fits the identikit of the perfect Rossoneri purchase, a philosophy outlined by Gazidis. Bologna could sign the Italian winger on a permanent basis at the end of the season but Juventus retain a buy-back clause.

With 8 goals and 5 assists with season Orsolini is valued at 20-25 million euros. Money that could arrive from the sale of Suso. The Spaniard will likely leave this summer after a disappointing second half of the season. Eintracht Frankfurt are also interested in Orsolini and competition will certainly increase if he performs well in the U-21 European championship.
