The one position the Rossoneri failed to address during last summer’s mercato was the left wing. The team constantly relies on Suso to create from the right side of the field, which leads to a very predictable attack. A high-quality left winger would give Milan a new dimension going forward and may solve their goal scoring struggles.
Fabio Borini has seen the majority of minutes at left wing since Gennaro Gattuso took charge and changed the team’s formation to a more conventional 4-3-3.

Hakan Çalhanoglu has seen some substitute minutes in that position, in which he performed decently, but he hasn’t lived up to the expectations created for him just yet.
