Ralf Rangnick has already identified two players he wants to move on at AC Milan.
The former RB Leipzig chief is set to join Milan this summer, though his role is yet to be confirmed.
Tuttosport says Rangnick will look to sell midfielder Franck Kessie and full-back Andrea Conti, two players who have established themselves as starters under coach Stefano Pioli but have struggled for consistency.
Should the pair be offloaded, it would mean only Hakan Calhanoglu would be left from the Yonghong Li era.
Rangnick is in talks about joining Milan as head coach and/or sporting director.
