The Milan management have earmarked Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea as an ideal reinforcement for the defence but it is a very difficult pursuit, a report claims.
Calciomercato.com writes that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are on the hunt for a new deputy to Fikayo Tomori: a centre-back with the pace and athleticism that Kjaer, Romagnoli and Gabbia do not really possess.
The source claims that Rudiger of Chelsea is on the wish list still having been linked repeatedly over the past few transfer windows, and he is the perfect fit as per the report but costs make things incredibly difficult.
They state that ‘from a purely technical and athletic point of view’ the German international ‘would be the ideal profile’ but costs related to his salary mean the operation is far from the parameters adopted by Milan.
Meanwhile, they add that Loïc Badé was a target last summer while at RC Lens but moved last summer to Rennes and therefore he is now a difficult target too.
