Kris Ajer remains on AC Milan's wishlist - but the Italians have not yet lodged an official approach for the Celtic defender.

Herald and Times Sport understands the Norwegian star is still being monitored by the Serie A giants who hope to strengthen their defensive ranks.

Sources suggest Milan could be ready to swoop albeit they are yet to speak to the Scottish champions over their player.

We told recently how Simon Kjaer had completed a move to San Siro following a loan from Sevilla. But director Paolo Maldini still wants the club to bolster their options and is understood to be a big fan of Ajer.

Ajer, 22, has been linked with a move to Southampton and Liverpool in recent weeks, as well as West Brom.
