CorSera: Milan eye €80m-rated duo to fix defensive ’emergency’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering moves for a pair of Juventus defenders to help try and fix their defensive deficiencies, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have struggled to keep goals out in recent weeks, having conceded at least twice in six of their last eight Serie A games.

La Gazzetta dello Sport recently reported that Milan could look to sign a new centre-back to partner Alessio Romagnoli as a result, especially if Mattia Caldara’s return from injury does not go smoothly.

According to Tuesday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera – as cited by – Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban know that investment is needed in the defensive unit.

The newspaper adds that Juventus due Daniele Rugani and Merih Demiral are both being followed closely by the Rossoneri, and the hope is that Juve have lowered their demands of each from the €40m they asked for during the summer.

In addition, the report mentions that right-back is an issue which could need addressing too, given Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti’s poor form.
