There is the distinct possibility that AC Milan could go without signing a central defender between now and the end of the window, a report claims.
With Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte all currently out, Milan are one injury away from a crisis at centre-back as only Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia are fit.
A number of targets continue to be linked my different media outlets including Takehiro Tomiyasu of Bologna, Kristoffer Ajer of Celtic and Nikola Milenkovic of Fiorentina.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), while Milan have been looking for a new central defender to give to Stefano Pioli for some time, there is a chance that one might not arrive.
The Rossoneri are evaluating different profiles, but according to the paper there would also be the possibility of staying with the current department. In this case, the hunt for the defender would be moved to January.
