Tuttosport: Milan moving fast to try sign talented Montpellier defender

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in pursuit of a centre-back after Matteo Gabbia’s loan exit and they appear to be going for Maxime Esteve of Montpellier, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan), the idea of the Milan management is to sign a deputy left-back and also a central defender too, given Gabbia has left while there are doubts about Simon Kjaer’s ability to contribute consistently.

Milan have set their sights on Esteve as per the newspaper and they got to work today to try and beat the competition for the French defender and wrap up his arrival as quickly as possible.

No further details are given regarding the demands of Montpellier nor what Milan might be willing to offer, but the theme of this summer window so far is that the accelerations from Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada can be decisive.

    1. Koopmeniers is not defensive. We scored 2 goals against Madrid and Juve but the 2 goals ended up being useless because of poor defence

      1. Until Pioli can fix the midfield, people will continue to think Tomori and Co are useless. Conceding is not just by having better defenders, without a proper midfield even the best of defence will be trash.

        1. Tomori is useless. If he needs help from midfield to defend properly what’s the point of him?
          I get that it’s a team effort but the dude makes blunders that can be contributed only to him.
          He let’s the team down with said blunders and it usually ends up with ball in the net

          1. It’s best to say Tomori is average. His best season in Milan was when he joined up newly from Chelsea. Subsequent seasons, his performance dropped.

            If you’re observant, you’d notice his poor decision making with the ball which sometimes leads to embarassing goals. Most recently, against Real Madrid in the US tour friendly game, he gave away possession in a very cheap & unprofessional manner to Federico Velverde which led to a goal.

            We need a back up stable defender that can be interchanged between Tomori & Thiaw since Kjaer appears to have reached his twilight years in the game.

    2. what is all the fuss about Koopmeiners? He was completely outmannered when Milan played Atalanta. He is average at best

    3. Don’t think we are spending 40M on Koopermeiners nor should we especially when we had the chance to sign him before Atalanta did for 15M
