TMW: Milan choosing between Lovren and Celtic defender Ajer

By Oliver Fisher -

The signing of Leo Duarte from Flamengo may not be the last addition Milan make in the defensive department, a report claims.

Duarte is set to put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal, joining the Rossoneri for a fee of around €11million and becoming the fifth summer signing in the process (assuming Ismael Bennacer is a done deal).

However more movements could yet happen, and a report from TMW (via states that Mateo Musacchio could be sold if an offer of €18million arrives to help Milan recoup a capital gain.

Talks were held with the agent of Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren earlier in the week, however his €4m-a-year salary – plus the €15m transfer fee – makes it a costly operation.

Meanwhile, the report claims that contacts have been made for 21-year-old Norwegian defender Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic.

Milan are seemingly insistent on signing young players that can be developed – so at the moment it appears that the leadership have a choice between pursuing Lovren or Ajer.
