Following the departure of Hakan Calhanoglu, the Rossoneri need a new midfielder. Adli could be a perfect addition to the midfield disposal of Milan. Following the muscle injury to Kessie in the pre-season, the requirement for a new midfielder has become an absolute necessity for Pioli. 

The versatile youngster can play different roles in midfield. He can be deployed as an attacking midfielder as well as a defensive-minded midfielder. The 21-year-old has excellent passing range as well as an eye for long shots.
