After the signing of Filippo Terracciano and the return of Matteo Gabbia, the AC Milan management are looking for pieces to complete the defence of the future.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below), the belief of the directors is that another central defender is needed and there are a number of candidates being considered.
Lilian Brassier of Brest remains a strong candidate, as Geoffrey Moncada seemed to admit before the game against Empoli. The issue is that Milan would like to sign him for less than €10m and the obstacle is the competition from Monaco, who are offering more.
The Rossoneri are banking on the will of Brassier, who would gladly make the move to Italy and join Milan this month, but we must wait for developments on that front.
For June, the name of Tosin Adarabioyo has emerged, a 26-year-old English centre-back who came through the academy at Manchester City and is in his fourth season with Fulham. In five months his deal will expire and Milan are following him carefully.
Adarabioyo has made eight Premier League appearances this season so far, after making 25 the season before and 33 back in 2020-21, when he really established himself as a top flight starter.
