AC Milan’s teenage midfielder Wilgot Marshage has become a transfer target for IFK Goteborg, according to a report from his native Sweden.
Expressen recall that it was back in September 2020 that the then-16-year-old Marshage signed for Milan on a three-year deal from IFK Lidingös, where he has primarily played with the club’s U18 and U19 teams since but has trained with the senior team regularly too.
Marshage is the captain of Sweden’s U18 national team and leads the way among players born in 2004 along with Lukas Björklund (also at Milan), Jonas Rouhi (Juventus), Hugo Larsson (Malmö FF), Williot Swedberg (Celta), Colin Farnerud (Stuttgart), Wilmer Odefalk (BP), Shakur Omar (Atalanta) and others.
According to the report, the teenager is open to a change of club in order to seriously establish himself at senior level and on Wednesday the central midfielder was at IFK Gothenburg’s Kamratgården training facility to familiarise himself with the facilities.
“I got a good impression, I have to see what’s best for my development,” he said after the visit. On if he has had a contract offer, he added: “No and it is not relevant now either. I have a contract with Milan until the summer and I will see what is best for my development. It is clear that I want to play senior football as soon as possible. We’ll see how it turns out.”
