AC Milan are contemplating making a move for Atalanta defender Matteo Ruggeri so that there is more depth in Theo Hernandez’s position, a report claims.
As has been reported by Sport Mediaset’s Claudio Raimondi (via Milan Zone), Ruggeri would require a price tag of at least €10 million if Milan are to have any success.
There is a desire for a new left-back at the club because Fode Ballo-Toure is expected to leave the club in the coming weeks with Bologna and Fulham thought to be very interested.
Hernandez is the first choice option at left-back and that will not change, but Stefano Pioli needs another player who can operate in that area.
Ruggeri has not been overly impressive at Atalanta since he started to get regular minutes in the first-team squad, but Milan think he could be an option just to bring depth. Being Italian also helps with registration issues.
