Simon Kjaer's knee operation is set to take place tomorrow, which means Milan will have to rethink their transfer strategy and hunt for a new defender in January. Kjaer injured his knee in the Rossoneri's 3-0 loss to Genoa on Wednesday and will have surgery the next day.
The Serie A giants have yet to release a medical update on the Denmark captain, and the length of his recuperation is unknown, but Kjaer is expected to be out for several weeks. Milan director Paolo Maldini stated on Monday that the Rossoneri had no plans to bring in new players in the January transfer window, but that their plans may have to change due to recent events. At center-back, Milan has only Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli, and Matteo Gabbia, thus a new defender will be required in the winter transfer window.
