AC Milan’s scouts are active in Belgium and have identified Genk defender Jhon Lucumì as a potential target, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com reported earlier today how the the priority for Milan is to buy Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea, but Maldini and Massara are still hoping to complete the area with one more young centre-back. They must be no more more than 22 years old, flexible to the point that they can be used as a right-sided centre-back and left-sided too, good at marking and with a sizeable physique, with Loic Badé of Lens and Chrislain Matsimà of Monaco mentioned.
According to MilanLive, Genk defender Jhon Lucumì is now a target too as the latest fascinating young player from a club that has produced players like Koulibaly, Milinkovic-Savic and Leon Bailey. Lucumì was the subject of a €6m bid from Stade Rennais last summer, while Sevilla are also believed to be keen on the 22-year-old, but Milan’s scouts are active.
The report mentions that the Colombian is valued more around the €18m mark now given his immense potential and the list of suitors growing. He has 30 league appearances already this season having become an immovable starter for the Belgian club.
