Milan are ready to make another dip into the transfer market for Brazilian defender Alex Silva of Sao Paulo according to Il Corriere Dello Sport.
Alessandro Nesta is out with a back problem and it is unknown as to when he will return.
This has forced the club to re-consider their options and vice president, Adriano Galliani is, once again, ready to shuffle his cards and bring an ace to San Siro.
The 5-0 drubbing to Chelsea didn’t help their cause either.
With Alarm bells ringing in defence, Il Corriere Dello Sport claims that Milan are ready to prize Alex Silva away from Brazil and towards Serie A.
The 23-year-old stopper is strong, powerful and has pace in abundance, qualities that are needed in Milan’s aging backline.
Carlo Ancelotti recently declared the market as closed for his side but there may be room for one last transfer.
Il Diavolo have the Scudetto stuck in their minds for this season and they are desperate to halt Inter’s dominance in Serie A, in which case, a stopper is needed to boost their chances of success.
Reports suggest Silva would be willing to join his Brazilian compatriots at the club as they prepare to samba-dance their way towards Scudetto success this term.
