Lloyd Kelly is the top Milan target to shore up the defense following Pierre Kalulu’s major injury. He’s on an expiring contract. The recent conversations between his agents and Bournemouth haven’t been fruitful, Corriere dello Sport informs.
His representatives from the CSM agency sat down with the Cherries’ brass, and there was no progress on an extension. President Bill Foley would prefer not to lose him for nothing but set an unrealistic price tag given the circumstances.
Milan are waiting in the wings to see whether Kelly will manage to force his way out. He’d kill two birds with one stone for them since he can play as a left-back too. That’d lessen the need for a Theo Hernandez deputy. According to Tuttomercatoweb, Bournemouth have dug their heels in to boost their chances of avoiding relegation.
The 25-year-old has featured eight times so far, wearing the captain’s armband on three occasions. Juventus are also keeping tabs but only want him gratis.
Our Take on Milan and Kelly
It’s not easy to lure players from the Premier League, and Rossoneri are one of the few Italian sides that indeed managed. He’d be a great get for a low fee, but they need him and his agents to wear Bournemouth down. They won’t overspend if they are confident they’ll snap him up down the line.
