AC Milan could be forced to turn to the loan market following the injury suffered by center-back Fikayo Tomori in the draw with Salernitana, as the England international could be sidelined for longer than originally planned.
Tomori left the pitch before the end of the Salerno match due to a left thigh flexor muscle injury which, according to information from La Gazzetta and Corriere dello Sport, could leave him unavailable for an extended period. Tomori’s injury is AC Milan’s 30th of the season. The Rossoneri are also currently without central defenders Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu due to long-term injuries, and 34-year-old Simon Kjaer cannot be called upon for every game to come. Several media outlets, including Tuttosport, suggest that AC Milan could turn to the loan market for reinforcements. One name that has been mentioned by several media outlets is PSG’s Nordi Mukiele. The Frenchman, who played 100 Bundesliga games with RB Leipzig before joining the Parisians in 2022, has only played 7 Ligue 1 games this season and two more as a substitute in the Champions League. Other names suggested by Tuttosport include Thilo Kehrer of West Ham and Clement Lenglet, on loan at Barcelona from Aston Villa.
