Milan desperately need a new centre-back before the transfer window closes, seeing as Matteo Gabbia and Leo Duarte aren’t good enough to play consistently. Although the former is promising, quality is needed now.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Kristoffer Ajer has reappeared on the radar. The Rossoneri have already evaluated the Celtic star in recent weeks, and they could now try to close a deal in the coming days.
New contacts between the parties are expected very soon, with a meeting set for next week. The player’s price tag is about €15m but it will be necessary for Milan to understand which formula is possible for the transfer.
The solution could perhaps be a loan with an option to buy, as the report continues, which would turn into an obligation if a certain amount of appearances are met. In any case, it’s clear that Milan need a centre-back and it remains to be seen who it will be.
