According to Italian outlet, La Gazzetta Dello Sport via GetfootballnewsitalyMilan have decided to fast-track the search for a Tonali replacement with Onyeka on the shortlist.
Alongside the intriguing 21-year-old Midtjylland, Bordeaux’s Jean Onana and Tottenham’s Pape Sarr are also said to be on the squad list.
Tonali will undergo new tests
Midfielder Rossoneri suffered a muscle problem in the club’s 6-1 demolition against Vicenza in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.
He is expected to undergo a further test to determine the extent of the damage, but he has already been ruled out of the Serie A opener against Udinese.
With the Italian on the sidelines for some time, Milan are looking to bolster their midfield options after already losing Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie in the summer.
