Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that AC Milan are still in the race for Saint Etienne centre back Wesley Fofana. The defender was expected to complete a move to Leicester City but there have been some obstacles hence the option is still open. Milan are having to work with a asking price of 25 million euros for the 19 year old centre back who had a monstrous season last season dominating oppositions all the way to the French Cup final.

Milan are in a tough situation as they need to close a defender soon. The current options seem to be Matija Nastasic from Schalke 04, Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic FC and Fofana. A new track that has appeared is the option to sign Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea at the end of the transfer window according to di Marzio via as the London based side are supposedly open to allowing him to leave on a loan whcih would be optimal for Milan.
