Tuttosport: Saint-Etienne starlet No.1 defensive target for Milan amid Arsenal, Everton links

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still interested in the idea of signing Saint-Etienne defensive starlet Wesley Fofana, according to the latest reports.

It was recently claimed by Sky Italia that the Rossoneri could target another centre-back signing this month in addition to the arrival of Simon Kjaer from Sevilla.

Head coach Stefano Pioli currently has just Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio, Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia as fit centre-back options due to Leo Duarte’s injury and Mattia Caldara’s departure.

It was recently reported by Calciomercato.it that 19-year-old Wesley Fofanais drawing admirers due to his ‘ability to win one-on-one duels’ as well as his vision, with Milan, Everton and RB Leipzig all interested.

According to Friday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by MilanNews.it – the number one target to reinforce the Rossoneri’s rearguard is indeed Fofana.

RMC Sport – as cited by Eurosport and the Mail – have recently reported that Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is a huge admirer of the teenager too, meaning it could be another transfer battle just like the one for Jean-Clair Todibo, which proved to be unsuccessful.
