Milan Earmark Platense and PAOK Budding Defenders

Milan are in the hunt for a young defender and set sights on two prospects, Atletico Platense’s Marco Pellegrino and PAOK’s Konstantinos Koulierakis. The management is keen on investing in a prodigy with significant potential, Sky relays.

The Argentine debuted in Superliga earlier this year and has collected 17 appearances since. He’s left-footed and possesses an Italian passport. He’s also on Sampdoria’s radar. His club’s president should fly to the Peninsula to broker his departure shortly.

Milan also have Koulierakis in their crosshairs on top of Pellegrino. He’s reportedly the top choice since he’s more of a sure thing. He became a regular in the past campaign and starred in 20 matches in the Greek championship and two in the European Conference League playoffs.

The 19-year-old has already debuted with his national team. On the other hand, his team demands €10M, so the negotiation isn’t easy. The Rossoneri will add a defender only if they find the right one.

Our Take on Milan Eyeing Pellegrino and Koulierakis

It remains to be seen whether they’d keep the newcomer or quickly loan him out since they already have four established center-backs. They have yet to add a fullback, which hints at Pierre Kalulu moving to the flank despite Stefano Pioli’s previous statements. At that point, they would indeed need one extra man in the middle.
