AC Milan Transfer News and Rumours Tracker: Week of January 20
Seedorf has already changed the formation from a 4-3-3 to a more offensive 4-2-3-1 and he'll need players to truly mold the team the way he wants it.
Let's take a look at the most credible Milan transfer rumors:
Essien Confirmed to Milan
This move was done to reinforce the squad in the Champions League, where Essien is not cup-tied.
Nocerino Lands in London
Essien to Milan Deal Close
Agents from both sides have reached an agreement, so the deal is imminent. Essien would right away fit into Seedorf's 4-2-3-1 as a defensive midfielder who is able to venture forward as well.
Nocerino to England?
Nocerino is a peculiar case. He rose to fame when he scored ten goals domestically two seasons ago alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kevin-Prince Boateng. Since then, he has gone back to being the mediocre player that we knew before his one-hit-wonder season with the Rossoneri.
Nocerino could still be a serviceable player at a smaller team, as he has a great engine in midfield and likes to make forward runs.
Marchetti to Milan?
The Italian international is one of the finest shot stoppers on the peninsula and he might be in Seedorf's plans as Milan look to improve throughout the core of the team.
Marchetti would be a huge upgrade over the inconsistent Christian Abbiati and would instantly be Milan's goalkeeper for at least the next five seasons.
Keisuke Honda Not at Full Fitness
Keisuke Honda has told the media that he isn't at full fitness.
The Japanese international claims only to be at 50 percent, according to Football Italia.
He just finished an entire season in the Russian league and still needs to gain proper physical fitness. Expect to see steady improvement from Milan's new No. 10 as he looks to improve each week.
