Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that AC Milan have reached an agreement for Antonee Robinson from Wigan Athletic on a loan with an option to buy. The United States international plays as a left back in the English Championship and will be joining Milan to replace the outgoing Rodriguez. Robinson will act as a cover for the in form Theo Hernandez and will likely be under observation for the rest of the season to determine whether he could be a good fit for the club in the long run.

The left back has accumulated 30 appearances over the course of the season in all competitions and score 1 goal. He grew up playing in the Everton youth system and has not played a single game in any top flight in his career. The total value of his loan and potential purchase is reported to be 7 million euros.
