Milan sound out defensive options, including Torino starlet


Milan are on the lookout for defensive signings in the January window, and have sounded out Radu Dragusin and Alessandro Buongiorno. Injuries to Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu have left the Rossoneri with a depleted back line, prompting them to look for market opportunities.

Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Milan are continuing their search for a defender, with the Rossoneri management considering a big investment before taking a chance on Brest centre-back Lilian Brassier.

Milan manager Geoffrey Moncada had already stated that there was still no deal for the French defender, leaving the club free to look at other options.

In the last few hours, Milan have been in contact with Radu Dragusin’s entourage to see if it was possible to set up an operation with the inclusion of Lorenzo Colombo in the negotiation. At the moment, however, there have been no formal steps with Genoa. Tottenham Hotspur are ahead of the competition and increasingly close to the defender. Bayern Munich are also understood to have only moved indirectly for the defender, and through intermediaries.

Finally, Milan are considering the prospect of Buongiorno from Torino, an idea from a few weeks ago that could be revived. The costs involved in the deal are still to be evaluated, along with the feasibility and the will of both the club and the player.
