AC Milan have not given up on the idea of signing Fiorentina captain German Pezzella, according to a report.
With Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte all currently out, Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia are the only healthy centre-back options for Stefano Pioli to choose from, meaning all major media outlets are now in agreement that the club are desperate to sign a new defender.
According to Thursday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu is the hot name at the moment, however the €25m asking price means that the Rossoneri have not yet been able to sink the blow.
The idea of Milan could be to invest €10-15million in a centre-back and for this reason Fiorentina’s German Pezzella could emerge as an option. The Argentine is well known by ex-Viola boss Stefano Pioli, has an affordable price tag and could be allowed to leave given Lucas Martinez Quarta is set to join Fiorentina from River Plate.
