Nigel De Jong suffered a possible season ending injury in the 4 - 2 win over Torino at the weekend. The Dutch international ruptured his left achilles and could be ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Rossoneri could now be forced to find a replacement for De Jong in January as Kevin-Prince Boateng is under performing and Milan have a lack of depth as it stands already.

According to today’s La Gazzetta dello Sport, after a meeting between Ancelotti and PSG's President, Milan received a negative answer regarding the option to loan the 23-year-old international attacking midfielder. It appears that now the 23 year old dubbed El Flaco is no longer an option and Milan will look elsewhere.

Gazzetta also claims that Milan are thinking about Kevin Strootman as a replacement for De Jong. Milan have been scouting him for a long time and could make a move for him this January – though his agent claims he’s never heard from Milan: “I’ve not had contact with Galliani or with Milan or with any Serie A club,” Chiel Dekker said. “In Italy they continue to write of team’s interest but in reality there’s nothing.”

Milan were linked with Daniele De Rossi yesterday but Adriano Galliani says it is certainly not an option and did his regular talking of ‘we are fine as we are’, claiming no midfielders will come or go in January.

“De Rossi and Sissoko? No, we’ll remain as we are. De Rossi is impossible. We’ll keep our midfielders, and De Jong will be replaced by one of our own players,” Galliani said. “I swear that El Shaarawy will stay at Milan. I have already asked Berlusconi to come to Milanello on Saturday ahead of Pescara game.”
