AC Milan have set their sights on the former Serie A man Jakub Kiwior for January. The centre-back hasn’t been getting much playing time at Arsenal lately and the Gunners are now open to sale, a report claims.
Milan currently have four centre-backs on the sidelines and that’s why Theo Hernandez has been playing in the middle recently. With Pierre Kalulu and Malick Thiaw expected back next year, the Rossoneri are set to sign a centre-back in January.
Several players have been linked with the club but Jakub Kiwior, currently at Arsenal, appears to be the most concrete option. According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Gunners are now open to a sale but it remains to be seen if they are willing to accept a loan formula.
As the report continues, Milan could perhaps include an option to buy but that’s as far as they will go in January. For Kiwior, having only played 478 minutes this season, it would be a good move as the Rossoneri would guarantee playing time.
Milan are also working on bringing back Matteo Gabbia from Villarreal, cutting the season-long loan short. The Primavera product is not deemed a starter, though, so his return would not rule out the signing of Kiwior.
