CM: Maldini begins hunt for a deputy to Tomori

Milan have made the decision to try to find a new centre-back who could be a more suitable deputy to Fikayo Tomori, according to a report.

According to Calciomercato.com, directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are already studying the market to find another central defender who has skills closer to Tomori in terms of speed and sporting performance than other options such as Alessio Romagnoli, Simone Cajair and Matteo Gabbia. Currently progressing.

The most sought-after name at the moment is Torino defender Bremer whose contract expires in 2023. Milan have researched his availability as he is now in his fourth year in Serie A so he knows the league, but there are some doubts about his ability to adapt to a four-way defense and competition from Inter.

Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger would be the “perfect profile” according to the report, but costs related to his salary mean the process is difficult to complete. Loïc Badé was a target last summer while at RC Lens but he moved last summer to Rennes and so is now a tough target too.

Ivan Ndica of Eintracht Frankfurt is another player on Milan’s list and his deal expires in 2023. The Rossoneri have followed him in the past but as a potential deputy to Theo Hernandez, but now the Frenchman has moved from full-back to centre-back.

The latest proposal is the Facundo Medina from the RC Lens shirt and now the Argentine national team. He is described as ‘dynamic and aggressive’ but Marseille, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid have already set their sights on him.
