AC Milan director Maldini admits admiration for Newcastle target Botman

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini has admitted his admiration for Lille defender Sven Botman.

Botman is a target for Milan and Newcastle this month.

Maldini said, "Unfortunately, we can't compare ourselves to Silvio Berlusconi's Milan, who could sign the best players in the world. This Milan has to be financially sustainable, so don't expect massive signings.

“Botman is a very good player, he is owned by Lille and has a contract to 2024. He's not the only good defender out there, but Simon Kjaer's injury means the figure we do really need is a defender.

"Whether we get a defender on loan for six months or purchase one for the next few years is another matter, we need to evaluate the kind of player and his price."
