Serie A giants AC Milan are reportedly trying to sign Abdou Diallo from PSG, who is projected as a replacement for Simon Kjaer .
Milan relies heavily on Kjaer in the back line. If there are no obstacles he has always been a core player in Stefano Pioli’s squad.
The Danish defender played a role in Milan’s success in winning a ticket to the Champions League. However, now the Rossoneri will not be able to use the services of Kjaer until the end of the season.
Because he suffered a serious knee injury. Milan was forced to buy new players in the 2022 summer transfer market.
Milan eyeing PSG defender
AC Milan has reportedly moved to find a replacement for Simon Kjaer. One name is said to have been pocketed by the Rossoneri management.
That player is Abdou Diallo, a defender belonging to PSG. The news was reported by RMC Sport .
He was Milan’s number one shot. However, it is reported that the Rossoneri only intend to borrow Diallo from PSG.
Milan is also reported to have contacted PSG. However, because they only want to borrow, the report says the chance for the Rossoneri to bring in the defender from Senegal is not too big.
Diallo Borrowing Problems
If you really want Abdou Diallo, there is a big problem that AC Milan will have to deal with later. The Rossoneri will likely not be able to play the defender in January and February, until maybe March.
Because Diallo will compete in the 2021 African Cup of Nations. Maybe Milan will choose other options besides the 25-year-old defender.
Abdou Diallo joined PSG from Dortmund in 2019. At that time he was recruited with a price tag of around 32 million euros.
Diallo is a versatile defender. Besides being able to play as a center back, he can play as a left back.
