Tuttosport: Milan eyeing €100m trio to fix two problematic areas

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are eyeing three names as potential defensive reinforcements for the January transfer window, a report claims.

We recently reported that the Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management are ready to sanction a ‘mini revolution’ in the upcoming mercato.

The team have struggled to start the season, having lost six of their first 11 games for the first time since 1941-42 and sitting eight points off the Europa League spots already.

According to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by MilanNews.it – Milan are ready to intervene in order to fix a couple of problem areas.

Neither Davide Calabria nor Andrea Conti are convincing in their performances at the moment and two replacements are being considered: Mehmet Zeki Celik of Lille (valued at €20m) and Denzel Dumfries of PSV Eindhoven.

Dumfries was linked with a £25m (€30m) move to Manchester United over the summer after a 2018-19 campaign in which he amassed four goals and seven assists.

The other area that Milan may look to intervene is the centre of defence but it depends on how Mattia Caldara’s return to action goes.

If it is decided that a reinforcement is necessary, the report claims that Merih Demiral of Juventus is an option, valued at around €40m.
