MN: Why Milan see Botman as the perfect CB signing and how the current situation looks

By Oliver Fisher -

Everyone at AC Milan seems to be in agreement that Sven Botman of Lille is the ideal defensive reinforcement and the situation is developing, a report claims.

MilanNews reports that the Rossoneri are admirers of Botman’s physical qualities given his height (1.95 m) and his weight (81kg) which make him a dominant powerhouse in duels both on the ground and in the air. aerial duels. The Dutchman also has an excellent sense of position and can play both as a left-sided and right-sided centre-back in a back four, with surprising pace too.

Timing of tackles is a strength of the 21-year-old too given he has only 7 yellow cards in his senior career. If Milan found a way to join him with Tomori it would not only constitute a young and promising pairing but also a duo who offer guarantees in the present too.

All of this though means Lille value him at €30m but given their difficult financial situation, the Ligue 1 side are ‘a shop on sale ready to sell their stars at the right price’. The Rossoneri follow the player especially for June but could try bring the operation forward via a formula with a deferred payment such as a loan with option. The interest is concrete, and the next few months will be interesting.
