Milan Trying to Use Youngster to Land an Elite Defender

After signing Matteo Gabbia and Pietro Terracciano, Milan might not be done adding to their defense and are keen on two high-profile names, Radu Dragusin and Alessandro Buongiorno. The two have hefty valuations, but the Rossoneri are attempting to lower them by inserting Lorenzo Colombo in the package, Sky relays.

The striker, who’s loan at Monza, had a decent start but hasn’t been a consistent starter lately. He has scored thrice. He’s worth about €15M according to his team.

Dragusin and Buongiorno have a €25/30M price tag, and Milan are considering using the money they planned to invest in a striker for a defender. It remains to be seen whether Genoa and Torino would be open to such a solution. The former are receiving very large bids for the Romanian international.

Tottenham and Bayern Munich are actively dueling to acquire the Juventus product. The Spurs remain in the lead and could finalize the deal in short order, unless the Bavarians counter at the last moment.

Our Take on Milan, Dragusin, and Buongiorno

They might have finally come to the realization that they don’t really need a new striker this season. They can postpone their search to the summer when there’ll be more options, and they’ll have more money to spend. Still, it’s wishful thinking to imagine Genoa and Torino would accept their proposal considering the other bids on the table. Plus, the valuation of their youngster is very optimistic.
