CM: Milan’s dream for the defence is Saint-Etienne star Fofana and not Milenkovic

By Isak Möller -

With just a week left of the transfer window, Milan are still searching for a new centre-back to strengthen the defence. Although it looked okay against Bologna, it’s clear that the Rossoneri need an arrival for depth.

Milan have been linked with several names in the last few weeks, such as Kristoffer Ajer, Nikola Milenkovic and Wesley Fofana. All three are good options, of course, if you disregard whatever the finanacial aspects of the operations may be.

According to Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri’s favourite isn’t the Fiorentina star – as has been previously reported – but rather Fofana. The 19-year-old has impressed with Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 and thus attracted a lot of interest.

However, as reported by Sky Sports News, Leicester are currently in negotiations with the French side over the promsiing centre-back. The competition is far from easy, in other words, and it remains to be seen if Milan will make an attempt.
