The injury of Simon Kjaer is a hard blow for AC Milan who will be missing the Dane defender’s services for the rest of the season The Rossoneri will have to run for cover in the transfer market in order to find the right replacement for the former Sevilla and Wolfsburg player.
As per the transfer market expert journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, who spoke to Sky Sport Italia, AC Milan have not yet decided on a clear strategy to deal with the situation relating to Simon Kjaer’s potential replacement. He says that qualification to the next round of the Champions League competition would change the plans: “Without the Dane’s problem, the Rossoneri in January would have liked to try to give away only Samu Castillejo and Andrea Conti.”
Now, it depends on tonight’s match to see what will really happen in January’s transfer window. AC Milan could try to sign Dutch 21-year-old centre-back of Lille Sven Botman as he is very much appreciated. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara could try to look for an opportunity from Chelsea with 25-year-old Dane defender Andreas Christensen being the dream. Malang Sarr, 22, also at Chelsea, is another liked player and same can be said for the Serbian 24-year-old star of Fiorentina Nikola Milenkovic.
