CM: Milan’s priority is to buy Chelsea defender but Japan star represents back-up plan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still keeping an eye on Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu after having tried to sign him last summer, a report claims.

The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Tomiyasu towards the end of the summer window when they were looking for a centre-back reinforcement, but Tomiyasu ended up staying put and this season has impressed as more of a right-back in Sinisa Mihajlovic’s 4-2-3-1.

According to, Milan are continuing to monitor the Japan international, even if the plan at the moment remains keeping Fikayo Tomori and signing him on a permanent basis from Chelsea.

In the last transfer windows – especially the summer one – Milan seriously thought about Tomiyasu as a reinforcement for the defence. The deal didn’t take off though because Bologna wanted €25million to sell him, and for the Rossoneri that was too high. Tomiyasu is continuing to be a very useful wild card for Mihajlovic.
