Reports: Milan interested in 23-year-old Verona star but see €8m bid turned down

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan made an offer to Hellas Verona for centre-back Nicolò Casale but saw their bid rejected, according to a report.

According to what is being reported by the local Verona newspaper L’Arena (via MilanNews), Milan have made an offer of €8m to Hellas for 23-year-old defender Nicolò Casale. It seems he is one of the candidates to plug the hole left by the injury that Simon Kjaer sustained.

However, the response of the Venetian club was negative because their president Massimo Setti plans to keep the player at least until the end of this season and then sell him in the summer for a higher amount when his stock has risen even more.

Milan’s interest in Casale has been backed up by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), who claimed that the Rossoneri made an enquiry for him, who came through the youth academy with the Gialloblu and is now part of the Italy U21 national team.

      Not really… just more regularly playing…as hellas not having higher ambition than top 4 teams…
      U find it ridiculous? Send gabbia out on loan n sign a peer from others? Because i do..
      Just give Gabbia more games to play n at the end of the season u will find him at the level of romagnoli..

        Same here in findong the whole discussion for THIS rest of season ridiculous.

        17 league games left, of that we will have Tomori soon, Romagnoli just after him

        Even Gabbia may not play more minutes this season.

        In the summer sure, buy a CB, but not Botman- Omeragic is cheaper, Bremer is faster. Botman is a bit slow. Yes Tomori is fast, but that does not negate that weaknest, same as Tomori speed does not help much if Romagnoli goes up front and then is too slow to return, leaving Tomori alone.

        Pacy defenders are gold now, given modern diving on softest of tackles

    Buy Bremer he’s the best value and I think would do well in Milan! I like the idea of a CB rotation featuring Bremer, Tomori, Gabbia, Kjaer
