AC Milan’s worst fears were confirmed on Friday as Simon Kjaer’s season is over due to a knee ligament injury that needed operation, so the search has begun for cover.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri management intend to make an important investment to both help the present situation and also fortify the back line for the future, with several profiles deemed potential tracks that they might explore.
The player who seems to be most suitable and most admired is Bremer of Torino but two factors complicate the possibility of a deal in January: the intense competition and Urbano Cairo’s willingness to negotiate his sale only after the season is over.
Massara and Maldini are probing other ideas too such as Benoit Badiashile of Monaco and Sven Botman of Lille, while in Belgium the name of Jhon Lukumi from Genk also seems like he could be an option.
Last summer the Rossoneri management met the agent of Lazio defender Luiz Felipe, an idea that could be back in fashion considering that his contract is expiring, while Nikola Milenkovic of Fiorentina remains given the good relations with his agent Ramadani.
