Journalist claims Milan have enquired about promising Anderlecht centre-back

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have had major struggles in the defensive phase this season and an injury crisis among the centre-backs has been one of the key causes. For next season, therefore, the Rossoneri will want to be prepared for everything. 

According to the journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Milan have enquired about the future of Anderlecht centre-back Zeno Debast. The 20-year-old has made 24 appearances this season and is also being courted by Eintracht Frankfurt, with the Belgian side expected to cash in this summer.

Debast’s contract with Anderlecht will expire in 2025 and this could result in a discount this summer, though Milan don’t consider him a priority at the moment. A lot will likely depend on the remainder of the season, as the centre-back situation will be a lot easier to judge after that.

Matteo Gabbia returned from his loan at Villarreal in January and has been very good, potentially getting a spot in the first team next season as well. With him, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Malick Thiaw, the centre-back position would be considered covered.

The youngster Jan-Carlo Simic has also impressed but he might be set for a loan spell in the first tier, getting consistent playing time to continue his development.

  1. Keep the good effort guys, soon enough we will fullfill the quest of having a team of 10 center backs.
    I wonder what kind of prize this achievement will give us ?

  2. We’ve had great success in picking up low cost centre backs of quality much higher than the price. Take Kalulu and Thiaw for instance. Just keep up that sort of good work. No need to get an expensive defender like Good Morning.
    If this guy comes cheap then no problem. There are way more important areas on the pitch to address

    1. I think it was Maldini who was good at picking up defenders, being himself one of the greats in that position and having a good understanding of what defense is.

      1. That’s my guess too but didn’t want to say it. Boban was great at finding the attackers. They complimented each other. Maldini missed having him there too. Soon it seems that they’ll cash in on his find ..Leao.
