Milan hit with Florenzi injury blow with defender undergoing surgery

Alessandro Florenzi moved permanently from Roma to Milan, after the first year spent on loan. Despite a good run of form, the Italy international is expected to face a lengthy spell on the treatment table as he will undergo surgery in Finland today.

Alessandro Florenzi

, who suffered a tendon injury during

Milan's

goalless draw against

Sassuolo

, will undergo surgery in Finland on Thursday as Milan is expected to release an official statement revealing Florenzi’s status and recovery time later after the surgery finished. The Italy international won the Serie A title while was on loan from

Roma

last season as the club decided to make his move permanent for a €2.70m fee.

However, as Milan predicted the severity of Florenzi's injury, they quickly reached an agreement with

Barcelona

to loan USMNT international

Serginho Dest

on the deadline day, with an option to make his move permanent for €20m in the summer.

 

The right-back was brought in as a late deal to replace Alessandro Florenzi. Dest had also been linked with Villarreal and

Manchester United

this summer, but an agreement was reached last night, and he flew in this morning for the medical and signed the paperwork at Casa Milan.

After a 3-2 victory over their arch-rivals Inter, Milan will face

Sampdoria

on Saturday in their next Serie A match.
