Report claims Milan will announce signing of centre-back from Sevilla imminently

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will complete the permanent signing of defender Simon Kjaer from Sevilla once the season ends, according to a report.

The Denmark international joined the Rossoneri during the January transfer window having had an unsuccessful first few months of the season with Atalanta, and has largely impressed after being given opportunities instantly.

According to what Todofichajes.com are reporting, the 31-year-old has absolutely convinced the Rossoneri, and that is why dialogue with Andalusian club is ongoing.

A total and final agreement is expected in the coming days, with Milan ready to exercise the €2.5m option to buy they inserted into the six-month loan deal.

Sevilla sporting director Monchi has given the green light despite the fact he would have liked to receive a greater figure from the sale of Kjaer, but he knows that after the Coronavirus emergency means it is not possible.

Milan are therefore close to announcing that Kjaer will stay beyond the summer, as a useful experienced option regardless of who the next head coach is.
