Schira: Parma targeting young Milan and Napoli starlets to reinforce defensive department

By Oliver Fisher -

Parma have set their sights on AC Milan defensive starlet Matteo Gabbia for the upcoming transfer window, it is claimed.

This summer Milan are expected to start the youth revolution at the club, with Ralf Rangnick at the helm of it all. Therefore, a lot more space will be given to youngsters, which could help a player like Gabbia.

Just before the Coronavirus outbreak brought everything to a halt, the 20-year-old made four appearances for the Rossoneri. With Simon Kjaer and Mateo Musacchio injured, he was forced to step up and surprised many by performing at a consistent level.

According to journalist Nicolo Schira on Twitter, Parma have set their sights on two young defenders ahead of the summer, with Gabbia being one and Sebastiano Luperto of Napoli being the other.

It is not specified whether they want a loan deal, but it is highly unlikely Milan would sell such a valuable young talent given Rangnick’s probable arrival.
