AC Milan are not only working to try and get a deal for Mehdi Taremi over the line as they are also exploring the idea of signing a new left-back, it is claimed.
Over the past few days, various reports from a number of different sources had suggested that Milan will not be signing a new left-back before the window is over despite trying actively to offload Fode Ballo-Toure.
Instead, the suggestion was that they would trust the options they already have internally, meaning more playing time for Primavera defender Davide Bartesaghi and/or the possibility of Alessandro Florenzi switching flanks.
According to Luca Bianchin of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan are thinking about a late move for Borna Sosa of Stuttgart if they can manage to find a destination for Ballo-Toure.
The 25-year-old Croatia international played 25 Bundesliga games last season racking up an impressive seven assists in addition to two goals.
