AC Milan make £10m bid for Wigan full-back Antonee Robinson and he is set to make dream move to Italy on Friday… just six months after Everton let him go for just £1.3M!
AC Milan have made a £10million bid for Wigan Athletic full-back Antonee Robinson.
The 22-year old USA international only joined from Everton last summer and is poised to complete a fairytale move to Serie A on Friday.
Robinson has started all of Wigan’s games in the Championship this season, catching the eye of the fallen Italian side.

The American is set to seal a move to Italy to join up with the rejuvenated Serie A side
Robinson never played a first-team match for Everton, and was sold for £1.3m
The left-back never played for Everton’s first-team, and was shipped out on loan for two seasons by the Merseyside club to Bolton and Wigan, who were impressed enough to seal a permanent £1.3m deal.
The Premier League side will receive a payment through a sell-on clause, but Robinson will hope to prove they missed out on much more in Italy.
He will join a Milan side in revival. After ending 2019 outside the Serie A top 10, Stefano Pioli has guided them to five straight victories.

The rejuvenation seemed to coincide with the celebrated return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a player who Robinson will share the dressing room if he seals the move.
