The Italian giants are reportedly eyeing a move for Fulham’s Nigerian center-back Tosin Adarabioyo, as reported by allnigeriansoccer.com.
The Rossoneri have shortlisted the Super Eagles-eligible defender as a potential addition to bolster their defensive line. AC Milan is currently facing defensive issues, conceding 20 goals in Serie A this season, the highest among teams in the top five.
While the AC Milan are not considering an immediate signing in the ongoing transfer window, they are keen on securing Adarabioyo’s services in the upcoming summer transfer period. The 26-year-old’s contract with Fulham is set to expire, allowing him to sign a pre-contract agreement with a non-Premier League club this month.
Earlier rumors linked Adarabioyo with a potential move to Bayern Munich, who are actively seeking a center-back in this window. However, the reported interest from the Bundesliga club has been dismissed. According to Transfermarkt the players current market value is estimated at €12 million.
Tottenham Hotspur has also expressed admiration for the former England youth international, but their pursuit of Radu Drăgușin may shift the focus away from Adarabioyo.
After overcoming initial struggles with injuries in the early months of the season, Adarabioyo has regained his place in Fulham’s starting lineup under manager Marco Silva. The Nigerian defender has started the last seven games across all competitions, showcasing his resilience and form.
As Adarabioyo inches closer to the end of his contract with Fulham, AC Milan appears poised to make a move in the summer transfer window to address their defensive vulnerabilities and strengthen their pursuit of success in domestic and European competitions.
