Milan to spend €7m on pair

  /  autty

Milan will reportedly spend €7m to sign loanees Alexis Saelemaekers and Simon Kjaer on permanent bases.

Milan have €3.5m options to buy Saelemakers and Kjaer, and Gazzetta dello Sport writes they will go ahead with both transfers.

Saelemakers joined the Rossoneri from Anderlecht in January and, despite initially struggling for game time, has amassed minutes in each of their three games since the restart.

The 21-year-old also ticks boxes for his age, versatility – given he can play as a right-sided defender or midfielder – and low price.

The same should also apply to Kjaer, who arrived in January like the Belgian.

The Sevilla-owned stopper has become Alessio Romagnoli’s first-choice centre-back partner and, despite turning 31 earlier this year, is valued for his experience.
