GdS: Milan have €15m budget for defensive position as two January targets emerge

By Isak Möller -

In January, Milan will try to sign a centre-back after their failed attempts this summer. Several players were linked with them and although offers were made, no one arrived in the finals days of mercato. 

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), the plan hasn’t changed for January as a €15m budget has been allocated to reinforce the defence. Two names, one of which is new, seem to be the most concrete options for the Rossoneri.

Ozan Kabak is the first option and Milan tried to sign him this summer, but Schalke 04’s demands of €25m were simply too high. Therefore, the German side will have to lower the price tag, also because the player is pushing for a move.

While waiting for news on that front, the Rossoneri are also evaluating other solutions, impressed by Hellas Verona’s Matteo Lovato. The 20-year-old is valued at €20m and more clubs are interested, meaning it won’t be easy.
