Di Marzio: Milan attempting to sign Al-Ahli defender Demiral on loan – the latest

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have set their sights on the former Atalanta and Juventus defender Merih Dermiral for the defence. According to a report, negotiations are underway to secure the current Al-Ahli man on loan until the summer. 

Milan are struggling at the back with several injuries and yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Bologna was another confirmation of this. With just a few days left of the transfer window, the Rossoneri could try to sign a centre-back to bolster the squad.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada have set their sights on the former Serie A man Merih Demiral for the defence. The Turkish international is currently owned by the Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli and the Rossoneri are attempting to sign him on loan until June.

However, as the report continues, the negotiations are very complicated for two reasons. Demiral has a very high salary currently, which is be that Milan cannot match, and Al-Ahli also haven’t shown any signs of being willing to accept a loan.

Milan will likely try until the end as the interest is concrete, but Rossoneri fans should not hold out hope about this one. It’s also possible that there are a few other targets that they are working on, and not just Demiral.

  1. I don’t see them isak and this transfer period is running out fast . We only signed one player that cost 5,5m like wtf no 2nd CDM nor 2nd LB and not replacement for giroud

    1. Demiral can be a ticking bomb in our locker room. Overtall good skills, but mentally lacking to play at high level. Both Juve and Atalanta wanted to get rid of him

      1. not only that but I want to insist again that a central defender is not a priority. In fact we have already many center backs or players that can play as center backs (Tomori, Thiaw, Kjaer, Gabbia, Kalulu, Simic, Theo can play as a center back and I think Terracciano as well).

  2. Stop that nonsense already! Stop signing useless players like Verona guy. Give our young to shin!!! We dont need any more defensmen!
