AC Milan recently expressed their interest in the Atalanta centre-back Giorgio Scalvini. However, it looks like it’s already too late for the Rossoneri as an auction likely will take place, a report claims.
Scalvini has played eight games from start in the league this season and has impressed at the back for Atalanta. Given that he’s just 19 years old, Milan are following his situation with great interest but it might be too late already.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Milan did indeed enquire about the centre-back but given the recent success, an action starting at around €30m is now likely. That is too much for the Rossoneri, bar any large sales and investments.
Scalvini isn’t just in the sights of the big Italian clubs, but also big clubs from abroad and that makes the competition very fierce. Given that they already have Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu, it would be foolish by Milan to spend €30m+ on another centre-back.
