Kicker: Germany U21 international with €2m clause eyed as Rangnick’s first signing

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could step up their interest in Paderborn centre-back Luca Kilian this summer should Ralf Rangnick arrive, a report claims.

Kilian made the headlines as unfortunately became the first Bundesliga player diagnosed with Coronavirus back in March. The 20-year-old is a German U21 international and has made 14 appearances in all competitions this season.

Alessandro Jacobone was the first to link him with Milan earlier this week, adding that Rangnick could choose to play either a 4-4-2 at Milan or maybe even a 3-4-3, but the signing of a quality centre-back is deemed necessary either way.

Now, German outlet Kicker (via MilanNews) have also picked up on the link, claiming that the the young German centre-back be one of the first signings that Rangnick goes for if he were to join Milan.

Kilian could move for €2million in the summer as he currently has a release clause in his contract, and he will likely look to stay in the top flight with Paderborn currently set for relegation from the Bundesliga.
