AC Milan are pushing hard to get a deal wrapped up for Samuel Chukwueze as soon as possible and Matteo Gabbia could be a counterpart in the operation.
According to the latest from Gianluca Di Marzio, the Villarreal winger is getting closer and closer to Milan and the deal could close between Monday and Tuesday of next week.
The Rossoneri’s latest idea is to include Gabbia in the negotiation to lower the amount requested by the LaLiga side, which is about €20m with the bonuses yet to be defineed.
Gabbia has spent the majority of his Milan career as the fifth-choice centre-back and has only really playing in times of widespread rotation or emergencies due to injuries.
As such there has been speculation that he could leave on a loan deal to get the consistent playing time he needs at the age of 23, but it seems a more permanent solution could be on the cards.
