From Turkey: Maldini wants €14m-rated South Korea international after positive reports

AC Milan have been linked with a new target in their pursuit of a centre-back as Kim Min Jae of Fenerbahce is reportedly wanted by Paolo Maldini.

Milan have been linked with a number of different options with regards to bolstering the defence such as Sven Botman of Lille and Gleison Bremer of Torino, but in Turkey they believe that a new name has entered the Rossoneri’s radar.

According to reports from Milliyet (via PianetaMilan), Maldini has received positive scouting reports on Kim Min Jae to the extent that he has now put the 25-year-old South Korea international at the top of his wish list.

The Turkish source underlines how in the next few days official contacts could begin for the defender who has also been linked to Napoli, who are evaluating him as a replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly.

The player’s current market value is €14m after a season in which he made 31 league appearances for the Istanbul club, plus 6 in the Europa League.
