MN: Milan’s centre-back search complicated as no targets fully convince – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s number one target for the January transfer window is to recruit a new central defender due to the long injury suffered by Simon Kjaer, but there will be no rush.

MilanNews reports that in January it is hard to make big signings because teams do not want to lose their key players mid-season and that is why Milan are not rushing. They want to give Pioli the right type of profile, namely one that is strong, aggressive, good with the ball at his feet and in 1v1 situations.

Sven Botman was the main target but Lille do not want to sell the Dutchman in the current transfer market, and to do so they are asking for a figure that Milan cannot afford. Manchester City do not want to let Nathan Ake go while Abdou Diallo of PSG, Attila Szalai of Fenerbahce, Eric Bailly of Manchester United and Malang Sarr of Chelsea are all other profiles that the club are evaluating.

However, for one reason or another none of them jump out and while Bremer is very popular he is more of a name for the summer. In short, there is no favourite target at the moment and the search goes on.

    Good keep playing Gabbia against weaker teams and Romagnoli or Kalulu (Calabria returns soon plus we can use Florenzi while we pay him) Only 17 league games left.

    Then buy a good CB. Lots of options in the summer

    No targets convince or Milan doesn’t want to spend the money? They think because they got away with it for a couple games against Roma and Venezia that they don’t need a good CB… they do if they want to win the Scudetto. I guess they are going to wait until Inter drops 4 goals on them to realize. Just like they thought they could get away with not replacing Calhanoglu, now Diaz is terrible and they have no number 10. Stop being cheap! They have a real chance to win the title this year if they just make a couple moves.
