CorSport: Milan happy to consider loan offers for young centre-back Gabbia

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will consider loan offers for centre-back Matteo Gabbia during the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Gabbia burst onto the scene in the second half of the 2019-20 season as Stefano Pioli battled an injury crisis, with Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte missing long periods, plus further injuries to Simon Kjaer and Alessio Romagnoli.

The hopes are high for Gabbia ahead of a season in which the club will participate in three competitions and will play over 50 games, provided they reach the Europa League groups.

However, il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) are reporting that the Milan management are keen for Gabbia to go out on loan to another Serie A club in order to gain more playing time for his development.

This of course fuels the rumours that Milan are in the market for another centre-back, with Fiorentina duo Nikola Milenkovic and German Pezzella heavily linked over the past few days.
