It is no secret that AC Milan will be active in the defensive market in the January mercato, and it seems one of their preferred targets is pushing for a move to the club.
Alfredo Pedulla has written today that Clement Lenglet is pushing to leave Aston Villa in January in favour of a move to the Rossoneri. Positively, his parent club, Barcelona, would not object to the move, meaning that should the Villains comply with his demands, a move to Italy could happen.
The news of the Frenchman acts as another turn in Milan’s January plans. Ahead of the window, the club have had a long-term preference to bring Jakub Kiwior to the Diavolo. However, the deal is seemingly off, with Arsenal against a deal.
Additionally, there has been a bump in the road regarding a move for Lloyd Kelly. The Englishman’s contract expires in the summer of 2024, and Bournemouth are extremely reluctant to let him go, preferring to lose him for free in June, instead of him leaving for a minimal fee in the middle of the season.
