As you would expect with the transfer market, Milan have been linked with a good amount of players already this summer. For the left-back role, for example, many names have been mentioned and a new one has emerged.
According to Loïc Tanzi, who is a journalist for RMC Sport, the Rossoneri are in talks over Monaco full-back Fodé Ballo-Touré. This past season, the 24-year-old made 24 appearances in the league but only six were from start.
Ismail Jakobs devrait venir remplacer numériquement Fodé Bollo-Touré, actuellement en contacts avec l’AC Milan. Les deux clubs pourraient trouver un accord rapidement pour le latéral gauche #Mercato #RMCLive https://t.co/N0Ye23Y7Vq

You would have to assume, therefore, that the Senegalese international would be the deputy for Theo Hernandez, should Milan sign him. Meanwhile, Monaco are close to securing the replacement, namely Ismail Jakobs from Cologne.
It’s certainly a hint that Ballo-Touré is expected to leave the French side this summer but it remains to be seen if Milan will be his next destination. In the coming days, there should be more information available on the matter.
