PM: Milan finally closing in on centre-back signing – deal nearly done with player keen on move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are closing in on the signing of versatile defender Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna, according to one journalist.

With Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte all currently out, Milan are one injury away from a crisis at centre-back as only Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia are fit.

A number of targets continue to be linked my different media outlets including Wesley Fofana of Saint-Etienne, Kristoffer Ajer of Celtic and Nikola Milenkovic of Fiorentina – but all appear to be unviable with the former having agreed a deal to join Leicester.

According to Salvatore Cantone of PianetaMilan, Milan are closing in on a deal for Tomiyasu of Bologna. In the last few hours there have been constant contacts with intermediaries who are trying to lower the request of Bologna.

There is no agreement yet, but the parties are not far apart. The Japanese international is also pushing for the transfer, which is giving a big helping hand.

    Seriously? We’ve gone from Fofana, Thiago Silva, Milenkovic, and even Upemacano to Tomiyasu?

      Yeah i agree with u, i think the management consider the economics side to grow our marketing in japan and asia in general. But still this is a bummer because we need quality player and now its more important than the business side

      this guy is super skill and fast!!And way cheap than Milenkovic and Upemacano!!If we got the man i will be super happy

    Before buying him, let’s think of if and how it we shall sell him to avoid capital loss.
    We better invest on a quality player who is salable.

    I don’t know about him much, maybe maldini saw good in him that is why he went for him.let give a chance

    Milan would be wise, if it signed Tottenham”s outcast Juan Foyt! Because he can be signed for cheap, while having great potential to be our saving central defender, or at least be a decent centre-back and good right back, so sign Foyt, and do it and you can sell Conti also!
