It has been well documented that AC Milan are in the market for a new centre-back and two options stand out above all, according to a report.
Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) confirm that Milan are after a new central defender but with the renewals of Maldini and Massara still at stake, Milan’s talks with Lille for Sven Botman have slowed down.
In addition, Newcastle are also pushing to sign the Dutchman and are even offering more than the Rossoneri at present, so an effort must be made if Milan are to get their first choice target even though they have agreed terms.
The Rossoneri have also seen Gleison Bremer of Torino on their wish list as an alternative to Botman, but the Brazilian has already reached an agreement with Inter over terms and therefore he will not be an easy player to sign either.
With Alessio Romagnoli on the way out and seemingly heading towards Lazio, Milan have decided that another central defender is needed.
