The season is over for AC Milan. After a terrifying start that saw them flirt with the relegation zone in the first month, Massimiliano Allegri guided his charges to a fantastic comeback, making an unlikely run to third position and a berth in next year's Champions League playoff round.
The Rossoneri will likely be favored to win most any matchup they are faced with in that round, meaning that the likelihood of three Italian teams in the group stage is high. But in order to successfully navigate going through both the Serie A and Europe's premier competition (as well as the Coppa Italia), team vice president Adriano Galliani is going to have to bring in some reinforcements.
Milan has a lot of front-line talent, but they're short on depth—a dire weakness when trying to compete in three high-level competitions at once. The team also has a few holes to fill, particularly in defense.
After years of big-money spending, Milan is trying to become a team that builds through youth. How Galliani and president Silvio Berlusconi handle this transfer window will go a long way towards building off the gains made this season with the likes of Stephan El Shaarawy, Mario Balotelli and Mattia De Sciglio.
All the potential transfer candidates you see here will be graded on a 0-10 scale of how likely it is that that deal will go through—10 being certain, five being neutral (and often needing more information) and zero being a flat "Heck No."
Who is most likely to be brought to the San Siro this summer? Let's look at some of the candidates and how likely it is that they play in red and black next season.
