Tuttosport via MilanLive.it are reporting that a key arrival will be needed for AC Milan in the midfield as the Africa Cup of Nations will keep starters Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer away for a number of weeks in 2022 and their fitness could be affected going forward too. Soualiho Meite will leave the club while Sandro Tonali will join permanently. The Rossoneri need more depth and quality depth, hence they are scouting Pape Sarr from Metz, Youssouf Fofana from Monaco and Boubacar Kamara from Marseille.

Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanLive.it have a similar scout list with Kamara, Fofana but have Mahdi Camara from St Etienne instead of Sarr.

Tutto Mercato Web via MilanNews.it are reporting that Kamara in particular is a good bet this summer as the Rossonero have watched him for a while and could attempt to sign him despite his high price tag given the talks would start at about 30 million euros. Milan will reportedly put forth an offer of a loan with an option to buy.
