According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Milan are planning to sign five new players in the summer, with the priority being a replacement for Hakan Calhanoglu.
The Turkey international joined Inter as a free agent, so the Rossoneri need to sign a new attacking midfielder to replace him.
Croatia international Nikola Vlasic is the Rossoneri’s priority target, but the Serie A giants haven’t reached an agreement with his club CSKA Moscow.

According to the Rome-based paper, the Diavoli also need to sign a back-up for Franck Kessié, one for Alexis Saelemaekers and one for Davide Calabria.
Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara and Chelsea’s Tiemoué Bakayoko are considered in centre midfield, while Diogo Dalot remains a target for the right-back role.
The Manchester United defender played with the Rossoneri on loan last term, but the Red Devils don’t want to sell him on a temporary deal again this summer.
However, Pierre Kalulu could replace Calabria when needed, so it’s not sure the Rossoneri will try to sign a new right-back.
The fifth signing could be Kaio Jorge, the 19-year-old striker who would gain experience by training with Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Rossoneri have already invested €60m in new signings so far in the winter transfer window.
Mike Maignan, Olivier Giroud and Fodé Ballo-Touré have completed permanent moves to San Siro and the same is true of Sandro Tonali and Fikayo Tomori who spent the last season on loan at Milan.
The Diavoli have also extended Brahim Diaz’s loan for two more seasons paying €3m.
