The Rossoneri are launching a double swoop, but the players in question are not Lorenzo De Silvestri and Gareth Bale as has been previously mooted...
According to reports this evening, Milan are preparing to bolster their squad further before the league campaign begins. Sportmediaset are claiming that the Rossoneri are not only moving in for Monaco's 35-year-old goalkeeper Flavio Roma but are also making a bid for midfielder Blerim Dzemaili.

Torino are set to receive €4m plus Gianmarco Zigoni for Dzemaili, who has been incessantly linked with Palermo. Zigoni is a new signing at Milan, having joined the Rossoneri from Treviso, and is highly rated by the Milanello staff. As a result he will probably move to the Granata on loan, although a co-ownership deal remains a possibility.

While negotiations for Dzemaili are yet to be concluded, Sportmediaset are also reporting that Flavio Roma is undergoing a medical with the Rossoneri physios. The move could be announced officially later tonight if it progresses smoothly.

Meanwhile, any moves for a full back can only be initiated after the sale of Massimo Oddo, according to Adriano Galliani. Although the vice-president is happy to allow Leonardo to have Lazio's De Silvestri, he must first find a buyer for Oddo, who spent last season on loan with Bayern Munich.
