AC Milan are keen to sign a new defender in the January transfer window as they struggle with the fitness of Pierre Kalulu and Simon Kjaer in the early stages of the campaign, a report claims.
As has been reported by Milan News, Stefano Pioli and the hierarchy are not happy with the current defensive issues in the wake of recent injuries.
Pierre Kalulu has missed a number of games this season through injury and Simon Kjaer has had repeated injuries over the past two seasons which means he is not an entirely reliable option.
A loan deal in January is the most feasible option given money is being saved to sign a new striker in the summer transfer window.
It is not clear which defender that Milan have in mind right now but a loan deal is the viable option. There is currently a lot of strain on Fikayo Tomori and Malick Thiaw.
