AC Milan want 2 more defenders after Tomori

AC Milan will sign Fikayo Tomori on a permanent deal at the end of the season but the Rossoneri will likely not stop there.

AC Milan are very impressed by the performances of Fikayo Tomori and the management will make his transfer permanent at the end of the season. It would be a shame to miss a central defender with the qualities of the English centre back.

The purchase option is set at 28 million euros, a figure that is certainly high but Chelsea have no intention to offer any discounts. However, with the probable qualification in Champions League and the sale of some players, Milan should not have any problems paying the €28 million transfer fee.

Even in the event of Tomori’s purchase, Milan will likely sign at least another centre back. La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms that the Rossoneri scouts are keeping a close eye on Matteo Lovato. The Italian defender is experiencing a season of ups and downs with Hellas Verona. Paolo Maldini has expressed his admiration for him and at the end of the season an official offer could ne presented to Verona.

Besides Lovato, AC Milan are also monitoring Jamil Siebert. The 18-year-old plays in Bundesliga 2 with Fortuna Dusseldorf. Siebert is a physically strong player (1.93m tall) and of great personality. He has made two appearances with the first team so far and is part of the Germany U-19 team. Siebert has recently renewed his contract until 2024 with Fortuna Dusseldorf. Fortuna are currently sixth in the standings and without promotion they will likely be forced to let go of their gem.

Young players like Lovato and Siebert would not say no to the call of a club like Milan. Hellas Verona value Lovato at around €15 million and both Juventus and Roma are on his tracks. Jamil Siebert on the other hand is valued at 200,000 euros according to Transfermarkt.
