Tuttosport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are still tracking St Etienne defender Wesley Fofana. The 19 year old centre back had a big season in France demonstrating his skills all the way to the finals of the French Cup as well as a strong display in the league. The youngster has been linked with Milan throughout the summer but the defensive targets have taken a backseat to the pursuits of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz in the past week or so.

As we reported here, Milan have previously submitted a bid for the defender but this was rejected as St Etienne hold out for more. The defender is a solid choice to partner Alessio Romagnoli long term and could compete with Simon Kjaer for the starting spot this season.
