Tuttosport: Spurs defender among three targets as Milan look to fix problem position

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to act decisively in the upcoming summer window and fix their problem at right-back according to a report.

The Rossoneri have struggled for consistency all season down the right side of their defence with Andrea Conti and Davide Calabria both failing to nail down a starting spot due to a combination of injuries, poor form and suspensions.

As Tuttosport reports on Saturday (via MilanNews), that particular area will ‘certainly be one of the hottest topics’ of the next mercato.

Calabria is still young and has time to improve but his fluctuating performance have begun to worry the management. In addition, the 23-year-old has not always shown that he can handle the pressure, especially at San Siro.

Conti’s performances meanwhile also often left something to be desired. At Milan, the player who hit his stride in Bergamo with Atalanta has not yet been seen. Bad luck with injuries is to blame to an extent, but the club’s hierarchy expected more.

As a result of the aforementioned, Milan are looking around for an alternative option. Mehmet Zeki Celik, a 23-year-old full-back from Lille, has been in the notebook of Rossoneri scouts for months.

Finally, among the other targets are Djibril Sidibe of Monaco (currently on loan at Everton) and Serge Aurier of Tottenham.
