AC Milan are still in the market for a centre-back this summer, a report claims, with two players in particular attracting interest.
The Rossoneri are looking to partner captain Alessio Romagnoli with a reliable centre-back this summer, and Tuttosport (via MilanNews) claims that Celtic’s Kristoffer Ajer and Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic remain the main targets.
Mateo Musacchio is destined to leave, Leo Duarte has had a lot of injury problems and Matteo Gabbia is considered not quite mature enough to be a permanent starter currently.
As a result, signing Simon Kjaer from Sevilla on a permanent basis will not be enough and that is why the management are moving for another central defender.
Meanwhile, La Nazione (via Calciomercato.com) stated on Sunday that Fiorentina are experiencing great difficulties in the negotiations with Milenkovic’s agent over a renewal, but that a €30m asking price has been set.
