AC Milan are likely to sign Chelsea defender Trovoh Chalobah on loan this January because the Premier League side are opening up to the idea.
As has been reported by Claudio Raimondi for Sport Mediaset (via Milan News), the Rossoneri are trying all they can to sign a centre-back this month given there are so many players out injured.
A whole host of names have been linked with Milan and whilst the favourite target appears to be Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno, he could prove too expensive for a January move.
A loan transfer seems far more plausible, and that lends itself to Chalobah. He has not been featuring heavily for Chelsea so far this season, partly due to the fact that he only recently came back from a knee injury.
That injury will be of concern to Milan as they do not need their new signing to end up injured, but it is a risk they may take.
As Raimondi says, Chelsea seem open to the idea of a loan with an option for Milan to make it a permanent deal in the summer transfer window.
“A defender will arrive and it will probably be Chalobah. Chelsea is opening up. He can arrive on loan, a Tomori-style operation,” Raimondi said.
That is the formula that Milan used to get Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea in 2021.
