AC Milan are considering making a move for Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo to replace Fode Ballo-Toure who is injured, a report claims.
As has been reported by Corriere della Sera (via Milan News), the Rossoneri think that Grimaldo could be a smart move in order to provide quality cover behind Theo Hernandez.
They are light in that area of the pitch after Ballo-Toure suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery. He will be out for well over a month and it is no secret that the club are willing to sell him in the summer.
Grimaldo was once touted as a major star for the future but the 27-year-old is out of contract with the Portuguese club in the summer, meaning he could be signed in January for a low fee.
The club would then need to ensure they sell Ballo-Toure in the summer when he is fit again to play.
