Report: Leicester eye Milan target to replace Chelsea, Man City-linked defender

By Isak Möller -

In January, Antonee Robinson was just one step away from joining AC Milan. He even flew to Italy to undergo his medical as the Rossoneri reached an agreement with Wigan. However, a heart issue was discovered. 

Just a few days ago, though, Milanlive.it reported that the left-back is still on the Rossoneri’s list of targets. The heart issue has been solved and Milan could thus return to the negotiating table, in need of a back-up for Theo Hernandez.

According to LeicestershireLive, Robinson has also ended up on the radar of Leicester, who are eyeing a discount as Wigan went into administration last week. Their current left-back, Ben Chilwell, has been linked with a move to Chelsea and Man City.

It remains to be seen if Milan will make a new attempt, although it’s certainly a name to keep in mind given the potential bargain deal. For now, though, the Rossoneri are focusing on the season finale.
