While AC Milan are on the verge of being able to announce their eighth summer signing they are looking for more additions, with a centre-back being the most pressing issue.
According to Calciomercato.com, Geoffrey Moncada, Giorgio Furlani and Antonio D’Ottavio have a list of tasks and one of them is to new central defender after Matteo Gabbia’s loan move to join Villarreal.
In recent days, Milan carried out an enquiry for Lenglet, the French defender who has returned to Barcelona after a season-long loan spell at Tottenham in which he played against the Rossoneri.
However, the costs of the operation are considered too high by the management despite the openness of the player to join, given he has refused a move to Saudi Arabia to stay in Europe.
There is little chance of getting that deal over the line and so Maxime Estève’s name is back in fashion. His asking price is €6-7m so Milan could try start up a concrete negotiation with Montpellier in the coming days.
