Sky Italia via Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan's midfielder Ismael Bennacer will likely swap his regista role to become a mezzalla in January. The club is looking to capitalise of the Algeria international's knack for holding the ball and passing to better use higher up the pitch. The report suggests Milan will enter the market for a central defensive midfielder.

The Algeria international made a brilliant interception against Sssuolo this weekend near the halfway line but failed to make it count by taking a silly shot at an open goal that was intercepted.
