Ex-Empoli coach Iachini: Bennacer will be incredible for AC Milan

Former Empoli coach Giuseppe Iachini is convinced by the quality of Ismael Bennacer.

The midfielder is being linked with AC Milan.

Iachini told MilanNews.it: "Bennacer? I had the pleasure to use him right in front of our back-line, he played in a similar role to Sensi with Sassuolo. Bennacer did great, he improved so much and he still can improve a lot. Milan? Well I think that Milan made an incredible move to acquire him.

"Bennacer like Pirlo? Well Pirlo started in a more offensive role but he then exploded once he was used in front of the back-line. Bennacer was also an offensive player but he really developed when we played him deeper in our formation similar to Pirlo or Verratti."
