The Rossoneri confirmed the signing of Soualiho Meite from Torino on a loan with option to buy deal from Torino on Friday, while yesterday it was confirmed that Mario Mandzukic has joined as a free agent.

According to what SportMediaset are reporting (via MilanNews), Milan are close to closing another purchase in this winter market, namely defender Fikayo Tomori who should arrive on loan with option to buy.

The 23-year-old central defender is waiting for the green light to leave England and fly to Italy, where he should land and begin his medicals either tonight or tomorrow morning.

The same source claim that Milan want to give Stefano Pioli a deputy to Theo Hernandez and for this reason they have targeted Junior Firpo of Barcelona.
