Milan Reportedly Take an Interest in Brest Defender

Milan continue to monitor the market to find a new center-back, and they have recently collected info on Brest’s Lilian Brassier. He’s highly versatile and could feature either in the middle or on the left wing. He has experience both in a three and a four-man defense, Sky relays.

The 24-year-old has shown well in Ligue 1 in the last couple of seasons. He joined his current club from Rennes in 2021. He recently notched his 100th appearance with Les Pirates. The defender has three goals and one assist to his name. He has starred five times with France U-20.

Milan has laid eyes on Brassier considering the problems for Clement Lenglet, their top target, and Thilo Kehrer, who was offered to them, Atalanta, and Roma. Monaco are leading the race to sign him from West Ham, Fabrizio Romano informs.

Despite Aston Villa’s desire to keep the Barcelona loanee, the Rossoneri will keep trying to snap him up, Tuttomercatoweb relays. They are set to sign another man on top of recalling Matteo Gabbia from his loan spell at Villarreal.

Our Take on Milan and Brassier

If they opt for a band-aid, it’d be more logical to acquire a veteran like Lenglet, or even better somebody with previous Serie A experience, or spend a little for Juan Miranda. After all, they already have their defenders for the future, but unfortunately, they are all hurt at the same time.
