AC Milan will be buyers in the January transfer market and are looking to address two key gaps in the squad in particular, a report claims.
The Rossoneri management were busy during the summer window as they brought in forwards Jens Petter Hauge and Brahim Diaz as well as midfielder Sandro Tonali, full-back Diogo Dalot and back-up goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.
However, it has been well documented that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara fell short in their pursuit of a central defender towards the end of the window despite seemingly switching targets several times.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com), the director duo are determined to put right the things they didn’t address over the summer mercato and are targeting signings in the January window in two positions.
The first is no surprise as they want to give Stefano Pioli a new centre-back – with Hellas Verona’s Matteo Lovato and Schalke’s Ozan Kabak linked by the paper – but they also want to sign a deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, to allow the Swede some rest in delicate moments given the inexperience of Lorenzo Colombo.
