AC Milan failed in their pursuit of two centre-backs late on in the transfer window, according to a report, leaving Stefano Pioli empty handed.

According to Tuesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive), one of these was RC Strasbourg’s Mohamed Simakan, but he was never that close despite reports of .

The 20-year-old had said yes to Milan, but the Ligue 1 club did not accept the last-minute offers and the raises of those offers that arrived.

Ultimately the €20m requested by Strasbourg was deemed too much, and the negotiation ended after a blunt ‘no’ to the last proposal of €15million plus a percentage on any future resale.

Milan then moved on to Antonio Rudiger. The German could have arrived on loan from Chelsea and seemed to be a real option. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara also spoke in conference call with Francesco Totti, an intermediary of the operation. However, the high costs (around €3.5m) removed Milan from the negotiating table.

The Rossoneri therefore remain with the current pack of defenders until January: Kjaer, Gabbia, Romagnoli, Musacchio and Duarte.
