AC Milan's young centre back Matteo Gabbia has received multiple offers to leave the club on loan this transfer window. The centre back came off the bench in Milan's Coppa Italia win over SPAL and looked at ease in defence. He has played only 8 minutes of competitive football with the Rossoneri this season, a huge drop from his 29 games for Lucchese last season. His agent was at Casa Milan to discuss the situation earlier today.

Daniele Longo via Sempre Milan indicates that SPAL are interested in the defender as a reinforcement while Filippo Inzaghi's Benevento are also looking at the centre back alongside another Serie B outfit Crotone. It remains to be seen if Milan allow him to leave as their depth at centre back is spread thin with the departure of Caldara and the injury to Duarte.
