GiveMeSport: Milan show rejuvenated interest in USA international

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan nearly signed Antonee Robinson from Wigan Athletic, and a report has claimed that they have retained an interest in the defender since he has been at Fulham.

According to what is being reported by GiveMeSport, there are a number of teams interested in signing Robinson ahead of the summer transfer window given how impressive he has been since joining Fulham.

The report starts by claiming that Chelsea are ‘serious’ about signing the 26-year-old, who has played 94% of available Premier League minutes throughout this season so far under Marco Silva, in turn keeping Milan loanee Fode Ballo-Toure out of the side.

Chelsea want to sign a left-back to provide cover for Ben Chilwell, who continues to miss big stretches due to injuries. The Blues have been scouting Robinson ‘for the past year’ and like what they see from the USA international.

Fulham are not under any pressure to sell and do not want Robinson to leave, which is why Chelsea know it might take £35m (€40m) to tempt them once the transfer window reopens.

Other clubs are interested too, such as Liverpool and Manchester City. Meanwhile, the source add that Milan have also shown reignited interest in Robinson, who was set to join in January 2020 before a heart problem was discovered which scupper the move.

Given the insistent rumours about Theo Hernandez potentially being the subject of a big-money bid from Bayern Munich in the coming months, it might well be that Geoffrey Moncada is looking into potential replacements.

  1. Facepalm.

    Moneyball Moncada has lost it at this point. If he really goes through with these types of transfer Milan is done for.

    Our midfield used to be: Tonali, Kessie, Bennacer and Krunic.

    We now have: Bennacer, Reijnders, Adli and Musah

    1000x worse.

    Now, with Theo possibly leaving – he’s going to replace him with Robinson? Are you kidding me?

    After we sell Maignan, we’re going to replace him with a trash can lid propped up by a stick and string – you know, moneyball and cost saving

    1. I think you’d be shocked if you compared Tonali’s stats vs Reijnders stats. The data suggests Reijnders is much more productive than Tonali. Although I doubt that matters to you. At this point you seem committed to keeping your head up your butt and ignoring the stats and what’s plain to see on TV.

  2. As a USA fan who has watched many games for Robinson at both club and international level, this would be a fantastic move if Theo is sold. Robinson is one of the most athletic LBs in the game, is a lockdown defender, a good assister, and a very intelligent player all around. He makes his teammates better.

    If they were to sell Theo for 80 mil, buy Robinson for 40 mil, and use the remainder to upgrade RB, Milan would be a better team in my opinion.
