Gennaro Gattuso warns Milan they need to bring in “Alberto Aquilani or Riccardo Montolivo, someone with quality.”
The Rossoneri fought back to beat Inter 2-1 in the Italian Super Cup on Saturday, but their sluggish first half performance raised questions.
“The way I see it, Milan need a new man in midfield,” Gattuso told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We more or less all have the same characteristics in that area. We need a player who can get the team moving a bit more.”
Following Andrea Pirlo's move to Juventus, they have been linked primarily with Liverpool outcast Aquilani and Fiorentina's want-away former captain Montolivo.
“Perhaps Aquilani pushes up more, while we all know Montolivo, as he has been an Italian international for years.
“Aquilani and Montolivo are both players of great quality.”
