Italian Giants Make ‘Contact’ Over Signing Celtic Defender

Ajer

AC Milan have made “contact” over signing Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer, according to MilanNews.it. The Italian website reports that the Norwegian is being considered as an alternative to Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren, who is also a target for the Rossoneri.

The Serie A giants are keen to strengthen their squad with younger talent ahead of the new season and have eyed Ajer as a possible candidate. However, it does appear that they have not made the Norwegian international their priority just yet.

It is believed that if a move for Lovren fails, Milan will then make a bid for Ajer before the end of the month. The Italian transfer window closes on August 18th.

The Celtic centre-back has improved immeasurably since his arrival from Start three years ago. After being converted from a midfielder into a centre-half, the 21-year-old has become a capable defender who is a regular first-team player.
