Milan are reportedly stepping up the chase for a new defender, ready to move for Bologna centre-back Takehiro Tomiyasu.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals the sale of Lucas Paqueta to Olympique Lyonnais has opened for the arrival of a new defender at Milan.
Wesley Fofana moves from Saint-Etienne to Leicester and Fiorentina’s asking price for Nikola Milenkovic is out of Milan’s reach.
Therefore, the newspaper reveals Tomiyasu would be the most likely option out of the three remaining, with Matija Nastasic of Schalke and Celtic centre-back Kristoffer Ajer.
Bologna reportedly want €25m for the 21-year-old Japan international, who arrived from Sint-Truiden last summer.
Nastasic would be the cheapest option, as the Bundesliga side are willing to let him leave on loan with an option to buy.
