It might seem strange to suggest AC Milan need to think about recruiting new players already since they've enjoyed a solid start to their season.
A 2-2 draw at home to Lazio was a good result for the Rossoneri which was bettered only by an away point at the Nou Camp.
In these games AC Milan used two different full-back pairings and we are likely to see a third before long. The current full-back roster of Luca Antonini, Gianluca Zambrotta, Taye Taiwo and Ignazio Abate is simply not strong enough for a team hoping to retain the Serie A title and make serious progress in the UEFA Champions League. Antonini is far from convincing and the issue with Zambrotta is outlined here.
Soon we will see a Taiwo/Abate combination providing the return of fitness for the Nigerian left-sider. But who can AC Milan look for in January to bolster their full-back options in quality, not quantity?
