CorSport: Defender waiting for a call from Maldini as he wants to leave Fiorentina

By Oliver Fisher -

Fiorentina defender German Pezzella is waiting for a call from AC Milan as he wishes to explore the idea of a move to San Siro, a report claims.

Milan’s desire to sign a new centre-back has become somewhat of a desperation given that captain Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte are all out, and the qualification for the Europa League group stages is expected to accelerate their pursuit as it brings extra revenue and more games.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), the name of German Pezzella has returned to the limelight after contacts with his agent in recent days.

The Argentine is a profile that coach Stefano Pioli really likes as he knows him well from his time at Fiorentina and also the Milan boss would like to bring experience to a young team.

The player seems to be about to leave Fiorentina and is only waiting for a call from Paolo Maldini. The name of Nacho Fernandez from Real Madrid also remains, but as a back-up option.
