The Italian media won’t let go of the idea of Djibril Sidibé moving to AC Milan in the January transfer window.

Needing a right back, the Serie A side have several options, with Everton’s loan man consistently included in the list of potential signings.

Calciomercato report ‘the player is unhappy’ with his situation at Goodison Park, which is described as ‘complicated’.

AS Monaco are said to be aware of the situation and considering ending the loan prematurely, so they can find the France international a new home in the January window.

All this is because of a perceived lack of minutes. Calciomercato describe it as the ‘misery’ of 121 minutes in the Premier League, yet, like all the Italian reports, they completely ignore that those minutes have come in the past two matches.

Should Sidibé’s run continue under Marco Silva then it’s a completely different situation to the one the Italian media want to push on behalf of AC Milan.
