Milan are keen to use this transfer window to sign a center-back and several names have been mentioned in the media. Especially Mohamed Simakan, but the Rossoneri could have a different defender instead.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio via Sports Central, who is speaking live on Sky Italia on Tuesday night, the Rossoneri have identified an alternative to Simakan. The latter suffered an injury that will keep him away for about two months, hence this could pave way for another defender move.
The player in question is Fikayo Tomori, who has only made one appearance for Chelsea this season. Milan will have to decide whether to wait for Simakan or move ahead with the English centre-back, who has been secured by the club already.
It remains to be seen what the formula of the deal would be, perhaps a loan. Either way, it’s clear that the Rossoneri are doing everything they can to reinforce the defence, wanting to remain at the top of the Serie A standings..
