Milan target Zenit's Paredes

Milan have set their sights on Zenit St Petersburg and Argentina midfielder Leandro Paredes for the January market.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, director Leonardo is hard at work on more targets after securing a €35m plus bonuses deal for Flamengo forward Paqueta.

The next reinforcement is in midfield, where 24-year-old Paredes fits the bill.

He is already familiar with Serie A due to his time at Chievo, Empoli and Roma, who sold him to Zenit in the summer of 2017 for €23m plus bonuses.

Italy's midfield is missing

After defeat in Portugal, Adam Digby looks at how an incoherent midfield remains Italy’s biggest problem and one that Roberto Mancini must address.

There is perhaps some irony seeing Claudio Marchisio showing off his new Zenit St Petersburg shirt just days before the latest outing for the Italian national team.

When the former Juventus man pulls on the sky blue kit of the Russian Premier League side, he will no longer wear the No.8 shirt that had long been on the back of his Bianconero one. Instead it will be a 10, and on Monday evening in Lisbon, the Azzurri lacked both a player fit to wear that most prestigious of numbers and any representative from the midfielder’s former club.
