Milan have seemingly found their deputy for Theo Hernandez, who won’t be able to play every game from start to finish this upcoming season. An agreement has been found for Fodé Ballo-Touré, a report claims.
The news that the Rossoneri are in negotiations with Monaco over the full-back broke less than an hour ago, and now more details have surfaced. Per FootMercato, an agreement has been reached between the clubs at €8m.

There are only few details left to fix, meaning the transfer could perhaps be announced as early as in the coming days. RMC Sport reported earlier that Monaco already have a replacement in sight, close to securing Ismail Jakobs from Cologne.
Milan’s interest in Ballo-Touré was also confirmed by Italian media and it seems the French reports, therefore, are legit. The left-back should sign a five-year deal. In the coming hours, more information on the matter should surface.
