Reports: Maldini in talks with Chelsea and Barcelona over duo as busy market continues

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini has no intention of resting despite a busy January window already, according to a reports.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport (via MilanLive) report, the Rossoneri are looking to try and seal two more signings before the window shuts, starting with centre-back Fikayo Tomori of Chelsea who now appears to be the club’s number one target.

Milan and Chelsea must find a definitive agreement on the amount of Tomori’s option to buy, because the clubs have agreed on the formula – a loan with option to buy – but not the amount.

The papers all confirm that Chelsea want to set the price at €30million, but Milan want to fix it at a lower amount, with the parties in constant contact and ready to close the deal in the next few hours.

Maldini and Massara would also like to sign a left-back as Pioli is missing a real deputy to Theo Hernandez. The name that circulates most is that of Barcelona’s Junior Firpo, who could possibly arrive on loan.
