Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan have both expressed an interest in signing the Algeria international, Ramy Bensebaini. The defender is currently playing for the German club, Borussia Monchengladbach.
Both AC Milan and PSG have been trying to strengthen their defense this summer. The Italian champions pushed hard for the signature of Sven Botman meanwhile their French counterparts have tried to lure Milan Skriniar away from Inter Milan.
However, both clubs have failed to finalize deals for their defensive targets. PSG and AC Milan are both looking at Ramy Bensebaini as a versatile addition to the squad. This is due to the Algerian’s ability to play both as a left-back and a centre-back.
Borussia Monchengladbach has enjoyed success with the Algerian as a result of this versatility. The defender will be used to rotate the squad at both the potential destinations, making this transfer saga even more interesting.
Ramy Bensebaini suits both AC Milan and PSG’s transfer strategy
In the past few years, the French club has employed a strategy to sign and recruit French players or players with experience in French Ligue 1. Paris Saint-Germain has signed Hugo Ekitike and Nordi Mukiele earlier this summer. The two signings also indicate a focus on players with experience in French football.
Ramy Bensebaini has played with Stade Rennes in the French top-flight for three years. The Algerian has also spent time on loan at Montpellier in the early stages of his career. His experience and versatility makes him a lucrative option for the French champions as a squad option.
The player also suits AC Milan’s transfer strategy as the club is focused on signing utility players to fill the gaps in their squad. Stefano Pioli is looking to add players capable of playing in more than one position. The intention is clear from the signings of Charles De Ketelaere and Divock Origi. Both the players are capable of playing in multiple positions offensively.
Ramy Bensebaini fits the bill as he can be used as a left-back or as a centre-back by the club. The Algerian will also solve the defensive problems at AC Milan as he will offer creative solutions for manager Stefano Pioli in the backline. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how this plays out as both clubs are locked in on multiple transfer tussles at the same time.
