Romano: ‘Two signings needed’ – Milan’s January strategy after Tomori blow

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will now be forced to add two new centre-backs during the January transfer window due to the emergency in the defensive department, according to Fabrizio Romano.

According to the information that the club have provided, the instrumental tests that Fikayo Tomori underwent this morning highlighted a myo-tendinous lesion of the right femoral bicep muscle, which will keep him out for a minimum of two months.

He joins Malick Thiaw, Pierre Kalulu, Marco Pellegrino and Mattia Caldara on the list of absentees that Pioli is currently battling at the back, leaving just Simon Kjaer as the only fit senior option and he too has struggled to remain available.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Milan already have a plan in mind for January. The first thing they will do is recall Matteo Gabbia from his loan spell at Villarreal, where he is meant to be until the end of the season.

Then, they were sign a new central defender too, because there are ‘two signings needed’ in the eyes of the management after Tomori’s recent injury. Romano does not name any names, but the likes of Nordi Mukiele, Clement Lenglet and Thilo Kehrer have all been linked in recent days.
