- Milan are looking for a new central defender to partner Romagnoli next season.
- Christensen has been added to the shortlist of potential targets at San Siro.
- The 23-year-old had been linked with a move to Milan back in January.
- However, Chelsea turned down approaches for the Danish international back then.
According to the Calciomercato, AC Milan are keen to add a 'reliable' central defender to their ranks to partner undisputed first-choice Alessio Romagnoli at the heart of the defence, and Chelsea's Andreas Christensen is 'one of the options' being considered by manager Stefano Pioli.
Christensen had been linked with a move to Milan in January during the winter transfer window but the Rossoneri had their approaches for the Dane turned down by Chelsea.
The Serie A fallen giants eventually signed Simon Kjaer on loan from Sevilla as an immediate fix but Christensen remains a long-term target at San Siro, according to the report.
The 23-year-old came through the youth system at Stamford Bridge before making his first-team breakthrough during the 2014-15 campaign.
The Dane was subsequently loaned out to German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach for two successive seasons, where he clocked up 82 appearances and impressed enough to earn a more substantial role at Chelsea.
Christensen went on to enjoy his best season for the Blues during the 2017-18 campaign, playing 40 times across all competitions under Antonio Conte, although his time under Maurizio Sarri last term wasn't too productive.
The highly-rated centre-back has had his fair share of opportunities this season, starting 15 times in the PL and thrice in the Champions League, with Lampard opting to rotate his central defensive combination.
The report also adds that Christensen's future at Stamford Bridge could well hinge on the amount of game time he receives when the season gets underway following the coronavirus hiatus.
He is likely to stay put for the foreseeable future if Lampard offers him a regular starting role, but Milan 'would be there waiting' for the Dane's signature should his playtime fall short.
