GdS: Atalanta targeting Milan defender and €10m defensive target

By Oliver Fisher -

Atalanta are looking to put a spanner in the works of AC Milan’s January plans by targeting one of their defenders and one of their defensive targets, a report claims.

The Bergamo club are in the market for reinforcement in January after learning that Simon Kjaer will leave, and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – they have earmarked two candidates to fill that spot.

The first is Mattia Caldara, who has not played a minute of competitive action for Milan since April after suffering a ligament injury in a Coppa Italia match against Lazio.

Fabrizio Romano recently claimed however that Paolo Maldini and co. have no plans to sell Caldara, who they expect to return to his peak levels soon.

The other target for Atalanta is Jean-Clair Todibo from Barcelona, a player who has been strongly linked with the Rossoneri in recent days.

In fact, the same outlet reported earlier on Friday that Milan have tabled a €10m offer for the teenager, with no response as of yet.
