AC Milan are looking for a centre-back to try and complete the department after Matteo Gabbia’s exit, and Andrew Omobamidele has been linked by another source.
With Fikayo Tomori, Malick Thiaw, Pierre Kalulu and Simon Kjaer as the current options in the middle of the defence, the management are pursuing a player who can replace Gabbia and perhaps offer more physical guarantees than Kjaer.
Carlo Pellegatti spoke during a video on his YouTube channel (via PianetaMilan) about Milan’s hunt for a central defender and he mentioned the name of Omobamidele, who plays for Norwich City and has an Irish passport.
According to Pellegatti, the Rossoneri could sign him either during the current summer mercato or wait until the January window opens, with the Championship side asking for around €15m to sell at present.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport reported, negotiation could still be difficult given Norwich will try to mount a promotion push and do not want to lose such a talented young defender.
