Sky: Milan’s clear plan in centre-back pursuit outlined – why Bremer is the ideal profile

By Oliver Fisher -

Bremer of Torino is the man that AC Milan appear to have picked as the best potential reinforcement for the defence, according to a report.

Manuele Baiocchini told Sky (via MilanNews) that Milan are looking for a player who can cover for Kjaer’s absence and there are two ideas in mind. On is to focus on an experienced player who already knows the Italian league well – which is why Bremer is liked – or a young prospect who can play alongside those who already are at the club.

The idea behind the latter would be that they would arrive and grow without having the responsibility of having to replace Kjaer immediately. Milan consider Tomori and Romagnoli the two starting centre-backs now and the alternatives at the moment are Gabbia and Kalulu, who is considered above all a centre-back and not just a right-back.

If a player does arrive in January it seems clear it would either be an investment in a young player or a loan for a player who already knows the league, otherwise the squad would remain the same.
