Sky: Milan only wanted Botman in January as other targets didn’t convince

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan tried to bring in a centre-back during the January but, in the end, they ended up with no one. It’s been a hot topic ever since as many Rossoneri fans felt a reinforcement was an absolute necessity. 

Fikayo Tomori has recovered from his injury, which is good news, but Simon Kjaer is still out of action. The initial signals that emerged from Milan’s HQ were that a signing was needed, but those signals changed during the course of the window.

As was explained by Sky Italia journalist Luca Marchetti, speaking on TMW Radio, Milan simply didn’t find the right profile to invest in. Sven Botman was their No.1 target but Lille made it pretty clear that they didn’t want to sell in January (talks still on for the summer).

The Rossoneri were also linked with the likes of Eric Bailly of Man Utd and Abdou Diallo of PSG during the month, but they were never convinced. In the summer, we can expect to see some defensive movement, though.
