CM: The truth regarding Milan’s reported pursuit of Hellas Verona defensive starlet

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are continuing to keep an eye on the development of Matteo Lovato but have not made an official offer just yet, a report claims.

Milan ended their centre-back search late in January as Fikayo Tomori arrived from Chelsea on a loan deal with an option to buy set at €28m or €30m depending on which sources you believe.

Recently, TuttoHellasVerona.it reported that Milan have not lost sight of Lovato despite Tomori’s arrival last month. The Verona centre-back remains a concrete target of the Rossoneri management for the summer transfer window.

According to what is being reported by Calciomercato.com, Lovato is one of the names that Milan are looking at as a potential future option for the centre-back department, which may undergo more changes in the summer.

However, Hellas Verona’s request of €20million was deemed too high for a player who is still a bit immature and has some developing to do, which is why things have been put on pause for now.

    If Tomori remains strong throughout the season buy him, then sell Romagnoli and buy Lovato. Defense of Kjaer, Lovato, Tomori, Gabbia, and Kalulu seems solid. Very young, perhaps too young to win anything but seems solid for the future at least. Essentially we have to wait on 2 things:

    1) Can Tomori stay strong for the rest of the season and prove his worth consistently, if so, great buy

    2) Will Romagnoli rise to the challenge now that he’s hit bottom or will he continue to fade, this will determine if he has a future with us or not.

    Time will tell on both these matters, but regardless of this, Milan’s main problem isn’t center back right now, it’s the way we’ve been playing as a collective. Nothing has changed in this team besides the January transfers and all of the sudden we’re playing awful. I don’t think it’s the transfers that have disrupted the team so that just means Pioli has been too stagnant while other teams are adapting.
