Milan to Take Close Look at Freiburg Defensive Prospect

Milan might further add to their backline in the summer and will be keen spectators of today’s Europa League clash between Juventus and Freiburg, as Kiliann Sildillia is one of their primary targets for the position. The youngster had a strong showing in the first game, where he limited Filip Kostic for most of the match.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Rossoneri could bring in another talent if they found one at the right conditions. They have had a strong track record in such regard in recent years. Pierre Kalulu and Malick Thiaw eventually became starters after being acquired for relatively low fees.

Sildillia caught the attention of Milan thanks to his sound performances this season, his first one where he earned a regular role with Freiburg’s first team. They signed him on a free from Metz in 2020. They groomed him in their second squad for a while after he joined, and he was eventually promoted last summer. He has featured in 29 matches, logging 2 assists.

Like Kalulu, he can play as a right-back or central defender. He figures to be an ideal addition to a three-man defense, as he’s tall but agile.

Our Take on Milan and Sildillia

The Rossoneri directors have proven to be at their best when unearthing young prodigies in the back, and really in any role. Plus, they have been more successful with cost-effective purchases than when splurging. If they stuck with the scheme they have been using lately, they would be thin at the position and would surely need to address it.
