CM: Milan want to sign a quality centre-back ASAP – talks resume over Bremer and Botman

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan know that they must act quickly and decisively to bring a quality defender to the squad given the centre-back emergency, with Bremer and Sven Botman reportedly targeted.

It was confirmed earlier today that Fikayo Tomori will need a minor surgery on his knee to clean up a meniscal problem he sustained during the Coppa Italia win over Genoa last night meaning he will be out for at least a month, and given that Simon Kjaer’s season is over a defensive signing is desperately needed.

Calciomercato.com reports that there are two names highlighted on the wish list: Sven Botman of Lille and Bremer of Torino. Milan have apparently made the choice to sign a ready-made and high-level centre-back, also because they are not convinced by any of the players offered on loan so far.

Talks with Torino are underway as part of the Pietro Pellegri affair, which might end up netting Milan some kind of preferential lane, and with Lille the situation is more complex, but Milan intend to make a new attempt to bring Botman to Italy immediately. Both are difficult pursuit, but the Rossoneri are willing to try.

    Bremer is the man.

    Get Bremer, probably the best CB that would want to join Milan at the moment.

  3. Giorgi Kvatchadze says:

    Let’s sign Bremer please. He knows Seria A well already and won’t have problems adapting quickly.

    I can’t believe they go back for a guy they can’t pay Botman,even rich newcastle stoped negotations with Lille.And now they will talk again with them 15 days to figure out that we dont have money for him.Transfer window half passed and they are not even close for the main and only problem as they said CB,they dont even have a single target to focus on,just going around asking for prices.
    Take ur time, no need to hurry,we are losing CB one by one but u have plenty of time,look out is there any loan options available,or u can just put Giroud on CB,we are in no need.
    And while u doing that go pay 6 milions for pelegri,a player you don’t even need and send him to torino on loan ,amazing job!I cant believe that so rich owner us ours doesnt wanna give some money in this hopeless situation.

      They’re not as stupid as you think they are, but can’t do magic either. Lille is a preffered partner because our owners have a foot between their door too. They will only do the Pellegri deal if he the loan contract is a done deal and it will probably give them a positive financial result. The buying price can be written of the number of seasons of the contract so if he signs for 4 years it will only cost 1,5 mil in this years accounts. Don’t think you would do better yourself and have some thrust in what they’re doing. Don’t forget the UEFA restrictions on Milan either.

    Nat Philips from Liverpool is available for January transfer. Not more than 20million is required to sign him. Maldini should convince him to join Milan, let’s go for him. He is excellent player only problem is he is non European passport holder.

  6. Nelli says:

    I think Bremer is a better fit for the league and the team.
